• 2020-2021 Budget Development Process


    As we proceed through the budget development process in the creation of the 2020-2021 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 2020-2021 budget, leading up to the development and sharing of the draft budget at our meetings on March 9 and March 23. The adoption of the proposed budget by the Board of Education will occur on April 14, 2020, with the budget vote to occur on May 19, 2020.
