The total includes 2,798 high school students, representing 77.4 percent of the 3,612 in Grades 9-12.
In middle schools, the 2,230 students taking CTE classes constitute 92.4 percent of those in Grades 6-8.
Fauquier’s CTE courses cover a broad range of subjects, from military science to building trades, cybersecurity to automotive technology and cosmetology to agriculture.
Estimated tons of roadside trash and recyclables that court-ordered community service workers collected along county roads from last July through March 1, according to Tom Pavelko, Director of the Fauquier County Office of Adult Court Services.
People convicted of nonviolent misdemeanors and felonies participate in the litter-control program to help meet their probation obligations, Mr. Pavelko said.
Logging more than 430 service hours, the approximately two dozen workers also picked up numerous and assorted bulk items, including:
• 61 tires.
• 15 large furniture pieces.
• 10 television sets.
• Two window air conditioning units.
• A disassembled whiskey still, plus hundreds of mason jars and liquor and wine bottles.
The number of career fire/rescue technicians Fauquier County hopes to add later this year, pending approval of a federal grant.
The additional first-responders would bolster staffing in Southern Fauquier, providing 24/7 coverage with career firefighter/medics working alongside volunteers. Chief Darren Stevens said that would particularly improve response to medical calls in the Route 17 corridor from Bealeton to Goldvein.
The maximum amount Fauquier County plans to borrow for expansion and renovation of Cedar Lee Middle School in Bealeton.
The construction will cost an estimated $17.9 million, with the project going out for bids in May. Issuing bonds through the Virginia Public School Authority for a higher amount would ensure coverage of financing and other related costs.
The project will add a dozen classrooms to the school, built in 1973, expanding capacity to 1,000 students and making other improvements.
The total revenue that Fauquier County expects to collect from permits, fees and licenses during fiscal 2022.
Despite COVID-19, that represents less than a half percent or $4,965 decline in such revenue that the county anticipates receiving from those categories this year.
