The Albemarle County School Board decided to send the superintendent’s proposed budget on to the Board of Supervisors without any major reductions.
The board reviewed the impact that increases in class size would have, the division's athletic programs, and the money spent on social workers who work with at-risk children.
However, an increase in expected revenues from local government has reduced the original funding request deficit from $6.9 million to a bit more than $6.6 million.
The school board will take a formal vote next Thursday on what they will send on to supervisors.
