School Budget News – District administrators are in the process of pulling together input from various stakeholder groups in order to guide them in developing the 2017-18 budget. A budget outlook presentation was made at the January 9 Board meeting (click on the link above to view the presentation). While the capacity to generate new revenue from year to year remains modest, the superintendent expressed cautious optimism that careful stewardship of the district’s finances over the years has created an opportunity to consider funding some program enhancements. A community input session has been scheduled for 7:30 PM on Tuesday, January 24 in room B-1 at the high school. This year, the focus of the session will be on discussing ideas for making district programs and services for students even stronger. School board members are hopeful that this session will be well attended.
