The proposed 2.5 cent increased tax rate significantly helps the schools but the entire proposed 2.5 cent rate increase must be approved in order for the division to see the entire benefit.
Also, The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, along with county and school division staff, will host community meetings during which residents will have the opportunity to offer their views on budget priorities. One meeting remains: Thursday, April 7, 7 pm, at the North Garden Fire Station.
