D.01 Budget Process - January 2001 Revision
The adoption of the annual operating budget is the responsibility of the Board of Education. The administration will present to the Board for adoption a specific budget calendar. The budget process will include specific budget hearings allowing the Board to learn of the public's priorities and what the public believes should be the major focus areas of the District. The administration will also be given a specific opportunity to speak to various programs and matters of interest to the Board.
Following such hearings, the Board will identify priorities and give general instructions to the administration to prepare a balanced budget based upon its priorities.
Finally, the Board will debate and vote upon budgetary matters without further public hearings.
