ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

The Albemarle County School Board has adopted its funding request for the next fiscal year.

The $187.1 million plan includes a funding gap of roughly $1.45 million dollars.

Formal adoption will not happen until April once the county finalizes the budget and determines if it can fill that gap.

The plan includes a 2-percent raise for teachers and a one-time increase to adjust teacher pay scales for the market.
