2022-2023 Proposed Budget 
For the 2022-2023 school year, the Cumberland County Board of Education is requesting an increase of $5.1 million in local funding from the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners.The majority of the local funding request focuses on investing in our premier professionals and implementing critical cost-of-living increases and anticipated legislative salary increases. By investing in our premier professionals, we are investing in the success of our students. Their work directly impacts the success and, ultimately, the trajectory of our students’ lives.
