Budget Calendar

Budget development is a year round process. The district continually monitors the current budget to actual expenditures and reviews the needs of students.

In December, the Board of Education adopts a budget calendar. The administration then prepares a draft budget with principals and supervisors.

From January through April, the Board devotes much of its meeting time to budget development. Buildings and departments present to the Board. Administration looks at internal and external factors that are likely to have the greatest impact on next year’s school budget. As more accurate cost estimates and enrollment figures are received, budget numbers are refined. Revenues are also refined in late March or early April as the State releases state aid revenue and the Tax Cap is filed.

In April, the Board of Education votes to adopt a proposed budget. A newsletter detailing the budget is mailed to all district homes. A budget broken down by line items is made available at the main office of each school, district office, and district website.

On the third Tuesday of May, the community votes on the proposed budget.
