FY2016 Budget Video and Feedback Form Now Available

Arlington Public Schools is beginning the budget process for FY 2016 and wants to inform the community about the funding challenges for next year. Over the past five years, enrollment has risen at a record and unprecedented pace – in all schools and at all grade levels – and operating costs are rising very rapidly because of this growth. If the budget is not fully funded, APS will be facing a funding gap of more than $23 million, which is driven primarily by increasing enrollment. Watch a short video message from the Superintendent that presents an overview of next year’s budget. Complete an online Budget Feedback Form to let APS know your ideas and suggestions on possible reductions. For more information on the budget process, visit apsva.us/budget.
