East_Side_Budget_Communicator_Newsletter Card IconEast Side Budget Communicator NewsletterTop of Page

The East Side Budget Communicator newsletters is designed to keep District staff and community informed about the latest news and updates around budget, finance, and other issues which impact staff and the District.  The newsletter is presented three times per year (i.e. Fall (October), Winter (February), and Spring (May).  The District's budget is the central focus, however, the newsletter also provides other important information and updates for staff.
 
As always, we hope you will find the newsletter meaningful and insightful.  If you have any comments, or recommendations for articles and/or questions, you can e-mail Silvia Pelayo at pelayos@esuhsd.org or you may respond directly to Marcus Battle at battlem@esuhsd.org.
