Hanover School Board Adopts Budget – Includes Pay Hike

The Hanover County School Board adopted its fiscal 2019 budget last night (6/12).

Hanover Schools Chris Whitley said, among other items, the $202.9 million dollar budget includes two per cent pay raises for all employees. “Eight new positions with an emphasis on school counseling behavior support--safety and security upgrades--continued funding of the five year technology plan.”

Also included is $10 million for infrastructure improvements. “Including a complete renovation of the Lee -Davis High School and Patrick Henry High School auditoriums and that will begin this summer.”

The budget also provides funding for eight new student slots at CodeRVA the new regional school for computer science.

That doubles the current number of Hanover students there.
