Education: Sustaining Excellence
Nothing is more important to the future of Arlington than the quality of our schools. Today, the quality of the education provided by our schools is outstanding by any measure. It is important that the County and Schools continue to collaborate to find opportunities for efficiencies and to ensure that school facilities are also available for broader community use. I have encouraged such collaboration over the years, which has resulted in consolidation of the Employee Assistance Program and Vehicle Maintenance Operations and other cost savings. I have supported our Safe Routes to Schools initiative and am encouraged by our increasing collaboration in transportation and energy planning. The County will be an important partner in addressing the school’s projected enrollment growth.
