Budget Public Comment Period Opens

Supporters of MLWGS can now offer comments on the proposed Fiscal Year 2014 budget. The Regional School Board will vote on this budget on Thursday, May 16.

A detailed email about the budget was sent to all MLWGS parents from the PTSA on Apr 24. Please reference that email for details about the budget. For copies of that email, please request it from Marianne Macon, PTSA Advocacy, macon4@verizon.net.

MLWGS supporters have three ways to comment on the proposed budget for next year:

  • Write or call your Regional School Board member, local school district representative, City Council member, or Board of Supervisor's representative. Contact information for Regional School Board members can be found here. Go to local school board websites for additional contact information. Personal outreach to your local elected official is the most effective method for providing comments directly to the decision-makers. 
  • Sign up to speak during the Public Comment period at the next Regional School Board meeting on Thursday, May 16. To speak, please contact Barbara Marshall (bmarshall@gsgis.k12.va.us) no later than 10:00am on Wednesday, May 15. Public comment guidelines can be found here.
  • Go to the MLWGS website: www.gsgis.k12.va.us. Click on the green banner labeled "FY2014 Proposed Budget," and post comments where indicated at the bottom of the page.
