Because of state budget cuts, the school has had to budget differently. They had to cut after school activites, which included enrichment and tutoring, and couldn’t run programs that they would have liked to run. Support staff was cut and programs and outside personnel were dropped and let go. Supplies have been cut and teachers have to buy necessities for their classrooms.

If I had $50,000 to fund a school program it would be for music. It seems music is always the one to be left out, I think it is important for every child to be able to experience whether that be in playing an instrument of there choice or proper teachers to teach the joy of music to children.

The budget cuts have affected our schools in terrible ways.The high school does not have proper air or heat.The junior high is still in a building that needs to be shut down because it is so old and falling apart.Not to mention that the shop class is in a building in much worse shape and in need of repair.

Hello :)

3. How have state budget cuts affected your child’s school?

Well for one, the after school program at my daughter school is non existent. It creates chaos, stress, and insecurity. I have no idea where I will be placing my daughter during the hours of 3 -6. I’m in the midst of preparing for an after school schedule that will be beneficial to us both.

How have state budget cuts affected your child’s school? Our school no longer has bus service. We must drive our kids to school since it is too far to walk and the school is on a major street so I don’t want them walking anyway.

State budget cuts have forced our school system to change the starting times for elementary, middle, and high schools. This is supposed to make the buses run more efficiently and will save the school system from buying new buses.

I helped lobby for healthier food choices in the lunchroom and getting rid of the soda machines. I’d give the $50,000 to the band – some of their instruments are so old that they can’t go to competitions and really have a chance. All the arts and vocational programs have been affected by the budget cuts, but Virginia doesn’t seem to think that matters. We don’t call it the “Old” Dominion for nothing!

I would never give $50,000 to a public school. Their spending has gotten so out of hand on what they spend it on an how much they spend for items. I would prefer it go to a small private Christian school that works on the minimum and does not take the 501(c) tax exemption. Maybe, some gym/sports equipment.

My daughter is entering her second year of preschool. Her first year was wonderful. She loved her teacher and sometimes didn’t want to come home becuase she was loving school so much! However, this year, because of budget cuts, her teacher was moved to a 3rd grade classroom. This was heartbreaking for my husband and I because we felt she was the perfect teacher for our daughter AND a great teacher in general, probably close to the best preschool teacher in the school.

Cuts have hurt our school. The most notable is the teacher aides. Each classroom use to have an aide but now the classes have to share aides. Each teacher only gets an aide for a couple of hours a day. This makes it really hard on the kindergarten and first grade teachers.

With $50,000 I would fund a field trip program so the kids could all get a chance to see and do things they might never have been able to before – trips to historical sites, hands on visits to craftsmakers, artists, museums…there are many places they could go.

I would want to fund math. So many students are lacking basic math skills and they really will need them later!

I help make the school healthier and happier by helping to run programs that recycle and reuse items. Without have so much need for new stuff, people that are stretched for money are happier. For instance, I have run an instrument sale where people can sell old, unused band instruments, and others can buy, often for less than renting for a year.

There is an alternative high school here that allows children who have made mistakes in the past, but realized it, and are working to rectify them, enroll in school and work online to catch up and graduate on time. If I could allocate $50k in funds to them, I would hope they would use it for the alternative portion of the school (which is very small) to purchase a building (they are in a modular structure). I think atmoshere can work wonders.

State budget cuts have been painful. My daughter is in her last year before college and found that a lot of the AP classes have been cancelled. So she’s taking basic classes that aren’t going to look impressive on her college applications. Class sizes are larger and we’re losing all the good, young, energetic teachers to the older worn-out, just counting the days until retirement tenured teachers. It’s such a mess.

En las ciencias, la verdad prevalece y es una verdad que un tecnico bien entrenado puede encontrar–sin respeto a su nombre, su familia o sus conexiones.
