Spotsylvania schools need full funding

Spotsylvania schools need full funding

I am writing to express my concern and support of public education in Spotsylvania County and my fear that the Board of Supervisors will vote to approve a budget that will force the schools to do more with a static budget (the same budget as last school year) despite the fact that tax revenues are increasing and the cost to run the schools (gas, electricity, etc.) continues to rise. The schools will be required to cut additional programs to meet these shortfalls.

I expect the Board of Supervisors to fully fund the School Board budget that was presented to them. Our children's future depends on it!
