In this meals-tax-for-schools edition, our goal is to help you sift through the arguments, lay out the basic facts, and provide a personal take with links to Meals Tax FAQ responses and RVA Dirt’s terrific analysis of alternative funding options (our Money for School Facilities document is coming soon).
After a slow moving process, we’ve experienced a rush of action and stand today with an approved facilities plan by the School Board! Like all things in life, the story is complicated. A big thanks to the RTD’s Justin Mattingly for covering this process with serious detail; we will be referencing his work frequently in this recap. He’ll help us along the journey.
