The holidays are upon us and students, school staff, and families are all busy enjoying the season. Simultaneously, another kind of season has also begun — one very different from the holidays. That is budget season: the time of year when school boards begin the process of building budgets that will be voted on at Town Meeting Day in March. 

This year each school district within FWSU will be holding a special work session meeting in January devoted solely to the FY2020 budget. The meetings are open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend. The special work sessions for each board are:

Fletcher School Board: Special Meeting on Thursday, January 3rd at 6:00pm

Georgia School Board: Special Meeting on Wednesday, January 16th at 5:00pm

Fairfax School Board:  Special Meeting on Wednesday, January 9th at 6:30pm

In addition to the special meetings, each school board will also hold a regular meeting in January where budget development will also be on the agenda. These meetings will be held as follows:

Fletcher School Board: Regular Meeting on Tuesday, January 15th at 6:00pm

Georgia School Board: Regular Meeting on Tuesday, January 8th at 6:00pm

Fairfax School Board: Regular Meeting on Monday, January 14th at 6:30pm

Board budget development will be complete by January 18th. At that time our budget website will be updated and information regarding the budgets will be available for you to see on the FWSU budget webpage.  If you can’t make it the meetings, you can always reach out to board members via email, which can be found here.
