Charlottesville School Board Holds Preliminary Budget Meeting

Posted: Updated:

The Charlottesville School Board is bracing for a rocky road ahead. The board met Saturday for a preliminary budget meeting.

Charlottesville schools director of finance Ed Gillaspie reviewed the changes between this year's budget and the potential budget for next year. Charlottesville schools are facing a deficit between $2 million and $2.5 million for the 2013-2014 school year.

"We're going to keep the things that matter the most and try to cut where we can that hurts the least. It's all up in the air but we are definitely going to protect our core services and our core values," said Ned Michie, Charlottesville School Board chair.

The school board is waiting for the governor's revised budget to come out the third week of December. Then, it will start making the tough decisions of what to cut.
