School Board Approves FY21 Advertised Budget

February 18, 2020 - 7:00 p.m.

On Tuesday evening, the Falls Church School Board unanimously approved its Advertised Budget for the 2020-2021 school year. Reflecting an investment in our students, our staff, and our schools, the budget includes a step increase for eligible employees and a 1% Cost of Living Adjustment for all FCCPS staff members.

The $54.6 million budget, which now heads to the City Council for approval, falls within the 3.1% Budget Guidance (for the second year in a row) and requires a City appropriation of $44.6 million. The approved Budget motion also includes the addition of 50 percent of any additional general government tax revenue above last December's projections.

The School Board also approved a Food Service budget of $1.1 million and a Community Service Fund Budget in the amount of $2.4 million.

Here’s what’s included in the School Board's FY 21 Advertised Budget:

  • A Step increase for eligible staff
  • A 1% Cost of Living Adjustment for ALL FCCPS staff.
  • An additional IB Middle Years Programme coordinator (1 each for MEH and GM)
  • A Pre K-12 English/Language Arts coordinator to support teachers and students
  • One Social Worker to support student’s emotional health and well-being
  • Increasing the Clinic Aide/Office Staff position at Jessie Thackrey to full time.
  • Three new custodial positions to help maintain the additional square footage of the new high school, which, this time next year, will be open and running.

Superintendent's Proposed Budget Presentation

January 14, 2020

Falls Church City Public Schools (FCCPS) Superintendent Peter Noonan presented a $54.6 million Fiscal Year 2021 (FY 21) operating budget to the Falls Church School Board on January 14. The proposed budget is balanced, for the second year in a row falls within Falls Church City Council Budget Guidance, and provides a competitive wage increase for school employees.

“We are grateful for the support that our City Council, School Board, and community have provided for our new high school, and recognizing those efforts we have again developed a budget that allows us to address our most pressing needs and provide a competitive wage for employees while also meeting Budget Guidance from the City Council,” Dr. Noonan said. ”With increases in both local and state funding this year we are continuing the investment into our three goals: IB for All, Caring Community and Culture, and Closing Gaps.”
