The most recent FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) regarding the school district budget have been posted on the district website. Click here to read them. As I'm typing this, I'm thinking maybe I will post a few of the FAQs here every day or two.
My hope is to educate our community about the budget and the process that creates it. I want you to understand the budget because the responsibility for it belongs to all of us as a community. It's a difficult thing to deal with, it's not fun, but there's no hiding from this responsibility. One way or another, there will be a budget that we will ask you to vote for on April 20. Please take a few minutes (at least) to understand what you're voting for. I'm not saying you have to like it...just understand it!
Any questions? Post one here, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or email email@example.com
Have a good day!
