Henry County School budget increases by $3.5 million

Henry County Public Schools is asking the Board of Supervisors for $19.433 million for the next fiscal year.

The Martinsville Bulletin reports the overall budget for the fiscal year 2021-22 is projected to be $90,669,832, a nearly $3.5 million increase from the current budget of $87,226,333.

Three million will come from other sources, such as federal and state funding, and half a million above last year’s amount is being requested from the county.

The budget, presented by Superintendent Sandy Strayer to the school board, will be considered by supervisors on May 10, with final approval set for the school board’s meeting on May 13.
