Recapping the County Commissioners' Budget Debate

Thank You

We did it.

Six months ago, the CHCCS PTA Council adopted as it's primary local advocacy priority to fully fund schools. We knew that a difficult budget year loomed and that the community would have to come together to make a difference.

Tonight the Orange County Board of County Commissioners agreed by a vote of 5-2 to increase general property taxes by 2 cents per 100$. In addition, they will be allocating almost $1M from fund balance.

The bottom line? Both CHCCS and Orange County Schools will be fully funded at the local level based on their initial budget requests.
