Mathews School District Budget Options

The Mathews County School Board and Mathews Board of Supervisors recently held a work session on the school division’s draft 2024-2025 budget. One thing that they all pretty much agreed on was the need to support teacher raises in order to attract and retain classroom professionals while competing with neighboring schools. Now, the school board is expected to adopt its draft budget at its next regular monthly meeting, which is set for next Tuesday, February 20th at 6pm at the Brooks Auditorium at Thomas Hunter Middle School. If that happens, then the adopted budget will be delivered to the County Administrator’s Office, and then the supervisors will begin their deliberations on the request as a part of the overall county budget.
