Budget Information

Printer-friendly version

The budget represents the financial plan to achieve the educational objectives of the school district. Development of the school district budget begins with a review of current year programs and services, analysis of student enrollment/ demographics, consideration of community expectations, and review of major factors that impact the budget (i.e. revenue limit & state equalization aid projections, revenue estimates, staff wage & benefit increases).

The Assistant Superintendent of Business Services coordinates development of the budget under the direction of the Superintendent. The budget process is comprised of five phases: planning, preparation, approval / adoption, implementation, and review / evaluation.

A budget development timetable and guidelines are developed by the administration and reviewed with the Board to provide a framework for development of the budget by district staff. Individual administrators determine the process and extent of involvement for developing the budget within their area of responsibility. Major budget issues and staffing recommendations are reviewed by the Administrative Team.
