Albemarle Supervisor: Schools Should Release Financial Information

Posted: Updated:

As Albemarle County supervisors plan the fiscal year 2014 budget, one board member wants more detailed numbers from county schools.

Rivanna District Supervisor Ken Boyd says the school system should hand over updated financial forecasts for the fiscal year ending in June. He says the information fosters better transparency, and would help the school system and the county plan better for future budget cycles.

"I've been asking for us to do a forecast for the current year so that we get a better idea of how we're doing in the current year and whether or not we're going to end up with a surplus," Boyd said.

In response, Albemarle County School Board Chair Steve Koleszar said in a statement:

"It always has been our policy and practice to respond to requests for information about our funding request or budget as completely and expeditiously as possible."
