Fairfax Joint School Board, County Board Meeting Postponed

The planned special joint meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the county’s School Board, set for early next week, has been postponed until after the School Board completes its budget for the new fiscal year, County Board Chair Sharon Bulova announced this afternoon. Bulova sent an e-mail to all relevant parties late this afternoon indicating the postponement. The County Board voted unanimously to urge the School Board to remove all fees associated with test-taking and athletics in the county schools, which is on the table for the joint meeting. However, that meeting apparently is not going to happen now until the School Board finalizes its plans for its FY2011 budget.
