The Warren County School Board moved to enact a budget measure that, if approved by the Warren County Board of Supervisors, would raise teachers salaries by 2% next year. Greg Drescher, the Warren County Public Schools superintendent, is reported as saying ” It’s just re-prioritizing what we need to do because the bottom line is we need to support our staff with the salaries.”
Last Friday almost 100 high school students participated in the Youth Day of Caring, an event put on by the Winchester based United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley. Students from James Wood, Handley and Luray High Schools were present and helped contribute. The event gives volunteers the opportunity to work on projects in the community, such as helping at homeless shelters and repairing facilities owned by non profit organizations.
