Regional School Board Begins Budget Process

The Regional School Board for the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School will meet this Thursday, Sept. 19, at 9:00am in Room 153. Parents from all participating school districts are strongly encouraged to attend. Please arrive a few minutes early to get a good seat! The Regional School Board includes a representative from each of the 12 participating school districts.

On Thursday, Kathy Kitchen, a former Assistant Superintendent with Chesterfield County, will present a new proposed funding level concept to the Board. The Superintendent's Steering Committee retained Mrs. Kitchen to analyze the MLWGS operating budget, major maintenance items, and the composite indexes of participating school divisions. This will be the Board's first look at the funding proposal, which was presented to the Superintendent's Steering Committee in August. This report will mark the beginning of this year's budget process.
