School 2016-17 budget: On July 19th, WCPSS staff presented recommendations to the school board for budget cuts. As a result of state and county level school budgets, WCPSS faces a $17.5 million funding gap. The state budget gives most teachers a raise this year but cuts other areas such as transportation. County Commissioners approved funding for schools that is about two-thirds of the school system’s request and not enough to accommodate ongoing student growth. Please visit our budget page for more information.
Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) 7 year plan: On June 20th, the County Commissioners approved an ordinance supporting the WCPSS CIP 2017-2023. Commissioners have multiple options for funding new schools and renovations including General Obligation Bonds. Read more about the 7 year plan here.
