201718 Superintendent's Proposed Budget

The 2017–18 Superintendent's Proposed Budget is premised on achieving three primary goals: academic achievement; student, family and community engagement; and effective and efficient operations. The 2017–18 budget is driven by our core beliefs which are led by the commitment that students come first. Wherever students are learning is the most important place in the district.  Educators and staff will promote high expectations that provide the foundation for student academic success.  The involvement of families to improve student achievement is an integral part of a child’s academic success and future.

We will promote leadership that uses child-driven, data-informed decision-making, and develop the high quality educators who are key to student achievement. We will continue to pursue quality community partnerships and increased operational and financial efficiencies to support learning opportunities for our students.
