According to the story in today's TD, City Council is having difficulty fulfilling its public commitment to restore the $3.8 million to the RPS budget. Apparently, it thought it could provide the money out of surplus funds it was expecting. The Jones Administration has not certified the surplus, so Council doesn't know where the money is coming from.
This is the usual Richmond practice of playing politics with our children's education. If you can, please email your Councilperson and the Mayor to indicate that you expect that they will put that $3.8 million into the appropriation for RPS.
