AmherstCountyPublicSchoolsThe Amherst County School Board approved its 2014-15 Budget last night. Motions passed included reallocating funding from a high school teaching vacancy towards a second school resource officer. That new officer will serve Monelison Middle School and the Amherst Education Center while the division’s current officer will cover Amherst County High School and middle school. Media outlets report, the division’s shortfall now stands at $1.8 million, a nearly $200,000 reduction from an earlier version of the budget.
