  • Supervisors won't support school budget that closes a school

    The Bedford County School Board may have to go back to the budget drawing board after a Monday night meeting with the Board of Supervisors.

    Three supervisors told Dr. Douglas Schuch, superintendent of schools, and Julie Bennington, vice chairman of the school board, that they will not support a school budget that includes closing a school. A fourth supervisor took the school board to task for giving school employees a pay raise while pay for other county employees remains frozen.
