More Money To Be Requested For Appomattox School Budget

The Appomattox County School Board on Thursday, voted to ask supervisors for about $1.1 million more for the coming school year. The School Superintendent outlined division expenditures, revenues and budget priorities. The increase request is in an effort for the division to reinstate five teaching positions in the areas of auto-mechanics, mathematics, history and English. The funding would also allow for the addition of a new foreign language teacher among other priorities.  Media outlets report the increased expenses included an expected hike in rates paid to the Virginia Retirement System, the reinstatement of a pay scale step for all employees and the purchase of a school bus.
