Budget News

The 2021 - 2022 proposed District Budget focuses on meeting the needs of all of our diverse learners and addressing instructional gaps caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Specifically, special education programming will be expanded and increased opportunities for curriculum mapping in the realm of cultural competency will be afforded to all members of our instructional learning community. Additional spending on technology resources will afford our students and staff to build upon the success of our current programming and to further personalize instruction. 

As a result of the work from our faculty, staff, Board of Education, and administration, an expenditure plan of $78,977,741 was developed with the allocation of $902,800 of fund balance and a proposed tax levy increase of 0%.
