bedford county schools logoThe state budget under discussion in Richmond is affecting Bedford County Schools. The county’s spending plan for the coming fiscal year, which included a $39 million placeholder, was discussed Thursday. That number is the same as the current fiscal year after supervisors allocated $1 million to the Maintenance Project Fund. The School superintendent’s budget would add positions for math teaching support to serve the 11 of 21 schools “accredited with warning by the state.” School officials have also identified technology as a particular need; and officials are considering adding wireless connectivity to every Bedford County elementary school. The fiscal year begins in July.
