      Focus on Fluvanna's Future

      Lake Monticello, VA

We, the undersigned, are concerned the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors (BOS) has underfunded Fluvanna County Public Schools this year and have voiced plans to further reduce funding next year and beyond. We insist that our BOS takes a more active role in understanding the needs of public education in Fluvanna. We insist that the BOS actively listens to the priorities of the constituents who elected them. We understand the county faces economic challenges. However, we view Fluvanna’s public education as a top priority which requires greater investment. We insist the BOS makes the necessary investment in education which is required to achieve the county’s education vision – even if it requires raising taxes in the future.

      We need to increase the funding because in our area they're alot of negative stuff that kids can get into I'm a former graduate of FCHS class of 2008 and from my experience I know what kids will do. Sports and other extra- curricular actives will help the kids and stay out of trouble. My little brother who is still going the school system and my other little relatives still have to go through the system. So I don't want them to get into other negative activities. Other point that I can make is that with increasing the funding of programs it will better the children physically and mentally. The Board of Supervisors has known all about our financial issue and what we need for the county since 2000 and now all sudden you want to cut on money for programs. It's too late for that the better environment for the children and the well - being of them and their future should be the boards main focus not destroying it

      My grandchildren are receiving their education in Fluvanna Co. My daughter is also a teacher in Fluvanna Co and is receiving less pay now than she did when she was hired 8 years ago, as a result of pay cuts. Sadly her living expenses have gone up, but not her means of support. She and most of her fellow teachers are dedicated and caring educators who deserve more!
