BOS Denies Albemarle School Board’s Funding Request

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday night, Albemarle supervisors voted against giving county schools nearly $1.3 million in one-time funds.

School Board Chair Ned Gallaway spoke to supervisors about the proposal at Wednesday night’s meeting, but supervisors Diantha McKeel and Brad Sheffield were the only two to vote in support of the idea.

“I felt like for this one time, given the challenges that they had with a lot of the state mandates, that it would have been appropriate to - that Brad Sheffield felt it would be appropriate to give them that ability to have one-time money just to tide them over,” McKeel said.

The other supervisors expressed concerns that the county's budget was already very stretched and that the money would normally roll over into the capital improvement program.

McKeel says supervisors want to talk with the school board about how to structure these items more appropriately, so they can avoid having this discussion every year.
