Messages to the Supervisors for Full Funding of the LCPS Budget

The Supervisors will set the tax rate and allocate funds to Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) Tues., April 5. That allows you just a little more time to ensure that the Supervisors have heard your support for full funding of the LCPS budget.

Below are suggested messages, one from parents and one from LCPS employees to the Supervisors who through a straw vote (non-binding vote) supported cutting the LCPS budget by one percent.

Kurtz (Catoctin) sally.kurtz@loudoun.gov
Delgaudio (Sterling) eugene.delgaudio@loudoun.gov
York (At Large) scott.york@loudoun.gov
Burton (Blue Ridge) jim.burton@loudoun.gov
McGimsey (Potomac) Andrea.McGimsey@loudoun.gov
Waters (Broad Run) lori.waters@loudoun.gov

SUGGESTED MESSAGE FROM PARENTS:
I understand the position you took in last week’s straw vote may have been directed toward transportation, but please know that if any reductions to the school budget impact the educational experience of my child, I will hold you responsible when I vote in November.

SUGGESTED MESSAGE FROM LCPS EMPLOYEES:
I understand the position you took in last week’s straw vote may have been directed toward transportation as opposed to the three percent COLA for school employees. However, please know that if any reductions to the school budget lessen the three percent COLA, I will hold you responsible when I vote in November.
