Friends of Hanover Schools Rally Tomorrow Night

Hanover Schools are facing a $5.4 million budget gap and Superintendent Jamelle Wilson had proposed making ends meet by cutting 24 teaching positions. More students would be packed in elementary school classes, and high school teachers would teach six of eight class periods, up from five of seven.

The proposed budget for next school year would also cut 12 elementary school teachers and increase the pupil-teacher ratio in elementary schools to an average of 22.1 pupils per teacher, up from 21.6.

Friends of Hanover’s Schools educates citizens of Hanover County about the budget process and the impact of both existing cuts as well as potential changes to the school system if the education budget continues to shrink.
