Winchester Council Discusses Shrinking School Board
The discussion followed a presentation from Winchester School Board Chairwoman Allyson Pate on the board’s request for the change. Pate said Tuesday (6/11/2019) that the board wants to continue with just seven members when both she and Richard Pell finish their second and final terms this year. The reduction would require permission from both the City Council and the Virginia General Assembly to change Winchester’s City Charter. Council forwarded the school board request to its June 25th business meeting with a 5-3 vote.
