VACo Continues to Advocate to Make K-12 Funding a Priority
On September 16, VACo President Penny Gross sent a letter to Governor McAuliffe communicating VACo’s support for making state K-12 funding a priority in the Governor’s introduced budget. The letter thanks Governor McAuliffe for stating his intention to make state K-12 funding a priority in his August speech to the General Assembly’s Money Committees. VACo urges the Governor and the General Assembly to fully fund the Standards of Quality as recommended by the Board of Education and the Standards of Accreditation. The Governor will release the introduced budget on December 17.
