Afternoon Poll: Where Should FCPS Make Cuts?

South Lakes High School Fairfax County Public Schools are facing a potential $100 million shortfall for 2016-17, and Superintendent Karen Garza has organized a Budget Task Force to look at cost-cutting measures.

FCPS is also seeking citizen input. Citizen suggestions have ranged from cutting varsity sports to paying for Advanced Placement tests to doing away with center-based Advanced Academics.

Reston Now organized some suggestions based on general themes from citizen input (and not due to any scientific examination of FCPS’ financial statements).

Which areas do you think could be better financially managed? Cast a vote and tell us in the comments.
