Alachua County School Board members will be discussing a variety of issues at their meeting tonight. Topics will include the details of local summer school programs, a donation of computers to Rawlings Elementary School and salary increases for district administrators.

She adds the new salary plan is not affected by Governor Rick Scott’s proposed budget cuts, but she is concerned about the future of Florida’s public education system if the cuts are made.
