CMS Wants Extra $40M for Budget, but County Officials Say That’s Not Likely to Happen

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is asking for $40 million extra for their budget but county leaders said that’s not likely. This is the second year in a row that CMS and Mecklenburg County can’t agree on a budget. Last year, money was held aside until the school district met certain demands. This year, the proposed budget doesn’t include half of the extra funding that was requested.
