Pressure Mounts on Return to School in Fairfax County

The week of Oct. 19 held important information for Fairfax County Public Schools families.

THE BOARD approved the FY2021 Revised Budget acting on Gov. Northam’s Oct. 8 announcement of new allocations of the CARES Act dollars, allotting $32.2 million to Fairfax County Public Schools. The total is based on a formula of $175 per pupil for fall enrolment. Fairfax City’s allocation of $0.52 million will run through FCPS. The figure for Fairfax County, the highest in the Commonwealth, is just under 1 percent of the County’s school budget of $3.2 billion for this year. According to the release by the Office of the Governor, “The funding will support COVID-19 preparedness and response measures for the 2020–2021 school year, including testing supplies, personal protective equipment, sanitization, and technology for distance learning.” Tamara D. Kaufax, Lee District Representative, said, “Time is of the essence,” referencing that funds must be spent by Dec. 30. The Board unanimously approved the funding and allocated it toward the Corona Relief Fund (CRF) with proposed expenditures to be determined.
