The district released the Budget Listening Session Webinar on Friday, May 29 ahead of the Budget Process. The Budget Webinar is a pre-recorded video delivered by Superintendent Kathy Ludwig that outlines the current financial landscape, district priorities, and what community members can expect as we prepare for the budget process beginning with the June 8 School Board Meeting.
This Budget Webinar is not a live webinar, but instead an opportunity for the community to learn and provide preliminary feedback before the Budget Process begins. As a reminder, you can find the full Budget Process Timeline below. Thank you for your participation and for providing valuable feedback through the online survey.

2020-21 Budget 2020-2021
Annually our School Board adopts a budget for the upcoming school year that guides our staff in how funds are spent toward instructional programs for students. This budget is initially put together by the Superintendent and District staff. The Budget Committee then reviews the plan and gathers feedback from our local community. After the review and possible revisions, the Budget Committee approves the financial plan and forwards it to the School Board with the recommendation that it be adopted. The School Board may or may not make changes, and then adopts the budget. This becomes the guide for spending for the coming year for the District. Budget Committee members are asked to attend five to six evening meetings beginning in the spring to review the proposed budget. To see a list of Budget Committee members or the Budget Calendar, please visit our Budget Committee Webpage.
