Highlights from the Jan. 10 Board of Education Budget Work Session

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education began the 2012-2013 budget season with a budget work session on Jan. 10. Interim Superintendent Hugh Hattabaugh gave a preview of CMS needs for the upcoming year. Leaders from finance, human resources, curriculum and instruction, and technology presented information that highlighted a common theme—CMS needs more funding to continue moving the district forward, including increasing student achievement and closing the achievement gap.

Everyone who lives in this community owns public education – even if you don’t have a child in a public school. When our schools are strong our community improves. Conversely, when educators and those who support them endure years of salary freezes while facing an increased cost of living, they bear a heavy burden that can trickle into classrooms and impede academic progress.
