The Falls Church School Board Tuesday night delayed its scheduled vote on its budget request for a week to allow more time for results from an informal survey to be received and to accommodate some late changes.

Changes included adding in $300,000 to cover the same amount that the Planning Commission on Monday declined to include in the City’s Capital Improvement Projects budget, including for a new bus and planning for the development of the land recently brought into the City limits that covers the high school and middle school.

The total operating budget sum is now at $46,711,800, including a City transfer of $38,685,000, or a 5.25% increase over the current year’s budget.
