Each year the school board adopts a financial plan for the upcoming school year called the Adopted Budget. This plan guides staff in how funds are to be spent for instructional programs for students.
The superintendent presents the proposed budget in early spring and is based on feedback from staff, parents and community members. The budget committee then holds work sessions to receive feedback from the public on the proposed spending plan.
Once the budget committee approves the financial plan (budget) it is sent to the school board for adoption. Changes to an adopted budget are made through a resolution transfer or a supplemental budget. Both must be approved by the school board.
