RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The budget plaguing Richmond City Schools could finally be coming to an end.
Getting a budget passed has been an emotional and contentious issue, with student walkouts and heated meetings.
The Richmond City School Board is set to vote on its $280 million operating budget Monday evening.
Richmond City Council and the School Board have been battling on the budget for months. But, council finally approved nearly $152 million from local contributions to the schools.
The school system will get $9.5 million for school maintenance in capital and operating funds.
But this amount is not what the schools requested, which is about twice that amount.
