The district is committed to being fiscally responsible and using your tax dollars wisely to support our students' education. Through our "student centered" budgeting process we prioritize over 78% of funds directly to schools to support student education, 19% of funds to support operations (buses, facilities, food services, safety) and less than 3% supports administration. We are committed to financial transparency. The District board reviews and approves the annual budget twice a year and reviews financial statements monthly. Everyone is invited to attend our public board meetings.
