Prince William legislative delegation gets wish list from county school board

Full funding for implementation of mandated Standards of Quality, increased funding for teacher salary increases, and funding to reduce class size are among the Prince William County School Board’s priorities for the 2016 session of the General Assembly.

Chairman At-Large Milton C. Johns discussed the priorities at a Nov. 23 breakfast meeting. The School Board approved its “2016 Legislative Priorities” at its October 7 meeting.

Johns noted the achievements of the School Division at a time of continued growth and per-student funding that remains far below neighboring school divisions.

The 2015 on-time graduation rate for PWCS was 91.4%, nearly half of PWCS graduates earn advanced studies diplomas, and all 11 PWCS high schools are in the top 10 percent nationwide and are fully accredited.

Education Week, the nation’s top education weekly, ranked the PWCS graduation rate 7th-highest among the nation’s 50 largest school systems.
