• 2019-2020 Budget Development Process


    As we proceed through the budget development process in the creation of the 2019-2020 budget, we will remain focused on the District’s strategic focus: providing academic excellence to our students, supporting open communications, developing a budget that is financially sustainable by the community, and making certain that we have clean, safe, and healthy environments that support the education programs.















    We will provide a series of presentations at our Board of Education meetings on the various components of our 2019-2020 budget, leading up to the development and sharing of the draft budget at our meetings on March 11 and March 25. The adoption of the proposed budget by the Board of Education will occur on April 8, 2019, with the budget vote to occur on May 21, 2019.
