news about the fcps budget
Please note: LHS PTSA is not taking a position on this issue. We are committed to providing you with as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision.

On May 2, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the FY18  transfer amount to Fairfax County Public Schools. The transfer amount is $47 million less than the most recent budget request by the Fairfax County School Board (FCSB), which is now tasked with trimming this amount from their FY18 Advertised Budget. FCSB will be holding its l ast public hearing on May 16/17 prior to finalizing the FCPS budget on  May 25.  To review the FY18 budget information, including the budget calendar/timeline, please use this link .  You can use this link to sign up to speak at the hearing .

Some of you may have received emails or heard about a volunteer organization called Class Size Counts (classsizecounts.com). They are advocating for quality class sizes for all Virginia students and teachers and are currently circulating this petition.

We urge you to click on these links and educate yourself about the budget before you take any action. Please make sure you are informed about ALL the issues before deciding to support ONE issue, as at this point in the budget cycle, adding to one line item will require cuts to another line item.
