The annual budget is a complete financial plan for the School District’s fiscal year and serves as the basis for the District’s operating and instructional plans and assists in the control and financial stability of the School District. The budget is developed with set goals, priorities, and objectives each fiscal year, as a measure to further the School District’s stated mission of, “Character, Competency, and Rigor for All.”

The School District’s fiscal year begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th, corresponding with the annual school year. Budget development for a fiscal year begins in the preceding February, and the Superintendent, or their designee, will normally present a tentative version of the budget to the Board of Education during the month of May, for their approval.

If the Board of Education approves the tentative budget, it will be advertised to the public, in accordance with State law, and public hearings will be held for members of our community to provide input and comment. The final version of the budget, and the millage rate, for the upcoming fiscal year will normally be adopted at the final, regular meeting of the Board of Education during the month of June.
