February 10, 2010: FY11 Superintendent's Proposed Annual Budget
February 9, 2010: Governor Kaine's proposed budget for the 2010-2012 biennium included a recommendation to maintain use of the 2008-2010 composite index in fiscal year 2011 and to defer use of the recalculated composite index for 2010-2012 until fiscal year 2012. Governor McDonnell yesterday recommended that the recalculated composite index for 2010-2012 be used to distribute state funds to school divisions in fiscal year 2011. The Governor's press release on this recommendation is available at: http://www.governor.virginia.gov/News/viewRelease.cfm?id=38.
While the governor's recommendation has not been adopted by the General Assembly, adoption of the recalculated composite index would result in an additional $635,502 cut in state funding to the York County School Division.
The School Board will discuss additional cuts to the 2011 Operating Budget at their next work session, scheduled for March 8 at 6 p.m. at York Hall.
