Regional School Board Meeting to Address MLWGS Budget Support

The next meeting of the Regional School Board (RSB) for the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School is this Thursday, Dec. 13, at 9:00am in the MLWGS Board Room on the second floor (located diagonally across from the auditorium). The PTSA strongly encourages parents to attend.
The December meeting is the last meeting before work begins in earnest on the 2013-2014 budget for MLWGS. The Regional School Board sets the amount of tuition paid for their students to attend MLWGS, and last year the Regional School Board voted to cut the 2012-2013 budget by 5%. Board members from Richmond, Goochland, and Powhatan voted against the cut. Since the 2008-2009 school year, the total budget reduction has been over 12%, impacting programs, curriculum, and teachers at MLWGS.
