FCTA members were in attendance at the Fairfax County School Board Budget Forum on February 20, 2010. 

Members were onsite to distribute the FCTA Summary Analysis attached below, as well as FCTA President's past testimony to the Fairfax Coutny School Board.

The proposed FY2011 Cuts to FCPS are primarily due to the increase of $71 million in retirement payments. That caused the school board to find $71 million in program cuts which started all the community meetings. The terms of these payments can be changed, but it requires leadership from the school board, and our VA Senators and Delegates to do so. 

Please contact your School Board Member, Virginia State Senator, and Virginia Delegate regarding this issue and ask them what they are doing to reform the VRS.
