We are guided by a commitment to providing equitable access to opportunities, and achieving academic excellence, where every school is high performing and every student succeeds. The adoption of the Combined-Funds Budget is an annual commitment to programs and activities for Alexandria City Public Schools.

On Thursday, January 4, 2024, the Superintendent proposed the FY 2025 Combined-Funds Budget for School Board consideration. This was followed by a series of work sessions, public hearings and staff responses to School Board questions.

On January 31, 2024, School Board Members submitted their Add/Delete proposals. By February 5, 2024 Members will co-sponsor the Add/Deletes of other Board Members. On February 8, 2024, the first Add/Delete work session is scheduled to discuss and consider School Board Members’ submitted and co-sponsored proposals for adjustment to the Superintendent’s proposed budget.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review and discuss the FY 2025 Combined Funds Add Delete - Co-Sponsorship information at the first Add/Delete Work Session.
