February 21, 2023 School Board Summary

Published On: February 24th, 2023

On February 21, the School Board received the Superintendent’s proposed FY24 operating budget. The budget summarizes mandatory expenditures, as required statutorily or by contract, and essential expenditures, to continue delivering high-quality instruction and sustain division operations. The budget outlines $13.5 million more in expenditures than last year. The Governor’s proposed budget would cover $5 million of this need with state funding, leaving $8.5 million to our local funding partners.

The General Assembly is currently working to reconcile budget proposals from the Senate, House, and Governor. One proposal would provide WJCC Schools with $4.3 million in additional funding above the Governor’s proposal, totaling $9.3 million in state support. Review these legislative priorities and call on your elected officials to send sufficient state funding to WJCC Schools. Click here to review the agenda.
