School Board meets tonight with budget matters in mind

SoVaNow.com / June 11, 2018
The Halifax County School Board will meet tonight in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex room at 6:30 p.m.

One local resident, Colleen Barnes, has signed up to make public comments early in the trustees’ session.

The School Board meeting comes on the heels of a new state budget that was enacted by the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Ralph Northam this week. Approval of the state budget clears the way for localities to finalize their own budgets in time for the start of a new fiscal year July 1.

Trustees are expected to find out how much, if any, additional funding is available from the state for local education now that Virginia’s biennial budget has been approved.

In other action, Superintendent of Schools Mark Lineburg is set to make a report on the successes of the HCHS softball and baseball teams in regional and state tournament action. board chairman Joe Gasperini is also expected to report on recent activities at the schools.

The agenda calls for several reports will be brought forth to trustees.

Lineburg is expected to be granted the authority to declare the property from the Cluster Springs Learning Center as county surplus.

Also, interim finance director Bob Aylor will speak on the divisionwide expansion of the school’s Community Eligibility Provision.
