The one-time funding from the small school enrollment loss will be used to fill the gap created by the rise of Alleghany County‚Äôs local composite index during the second year of the biennium budget.
The School Board approved additional expenditures for supplies needed to outfit three new school resource officers, additional cost for dual enrollment programs, electronic storage of records, hard to fill staff positions, tuition assistance, field trips and Studer Education. The funding for these additional expenditures will be from anticipated fiscal year 2018 year end fund balances.
