New Today: (5/22) At its May 21 regular business meeting, the School Board voted to adopt the FY 2016 Approved Budget. The Board also approved two follow-on motions: (1) to direct the Superintendent to develop an FY 2017 Proposed Budget that includes compensation increases for employees; and (2) to direct the Superintendent, in the preparation of the FY 2017 budget, to thoroughly analyze all Division operating expenditure budgets to identify any potential cost savings and/or reductions using a methodology commensurate to that of zero-based budgeting.
The Fairfax County School Board adopted the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) FY 2016 Approved Budget of $2.6 billion which includes a step increase for all eligible employees and a market scale adjustment of 0.62 percent. The FY 2016 budget is an increase of $53.9 million, or 2.2 percent, over the FY 2015 Approved Budget. Looking ahead to FY 2017, FCPS faces more than $100 million shortfall. #savefcps More.
