The school board's proposed redistricting map, which would shift 142 students to Marshall and Taylor Middle Schools.
On Monday, the Fauquier County school board will decide whether to sign off on a $127.5 million budget offering pay raises to school employees - and a redistricting plan that would ease crowding issues at three county middle schools.

The meeting will take place 6 p.m. at the Warren Green Building.

The redistricting plan changes school boundaries, moving 142 students from Auburn, Cedar Lee, and Warrenton middle schools to Marshall and Taylor.

For Auburn students, U.S. Route 29 becomes the boundary line. Neighborhoods on the north side of the highway will be moved to Marshall, including the Westervelt and Snow Hill subdivisions and the neighborhoods of Old Alexandria Turnpike and Fosters Fork Road.

For Warrenton students, the Glannaman Way, Bear Wallow Road west of the Training Center, U.S. 17 addresses between Foxcroft and Keith Roads and addresses around Moffett Drive would move to Marshall Middle. The Academy Hill Road area from Boundary Lane to Walker Drive, the Ridges of Warrenton, Villas at the Ridges of Warrenton, Breezewood, Edgemont, Oliver City and East Street neighborhoods would see students moved from Warrenton to Taylor Middle.

For Cedar Lee students, the Liberty Run subdivision would be moved to Taylor Middle.

The plan includes waiver options for rising eighth graders driven to school by parents, and rising seventh graders who were subjected to the last round of redistricting in 2011.

The board will consider a recommended school budget discussed at its April 15 work session. County supervisors agreed to an extra $1.5 million for schools this year, but that number fell short of the additional $5 million for which school officials hoped.

The board will also vote to let the incoming superintendent, Dr. David Jeck start work May 1, instead of May 13 as originally intended. Greene County schools agreed to release Jeck early, making a May 1 start date possible, said school board clerk Ginger Callahan.
