Future funding concerns

Faced with uncertainty over state funding, some members of the School Board began raising the issue in the spring of 2012 of creating a public education foundation to raise money to help pay for a portion of the school system. Such a system would be built on the efforts of the Public Education Fund of Charlottesville-Albemarle. [1]

Capacity issues

A study by VMDO commissioned by the school board in 2017 revealed that five of the six elementary schools are over their functional capacity, meaning they are above 85 percent of their maximum capacity. In the 2000's, the school system was considering shuttering a school but planning may soon get underway for a new school. [2]
