Budget Advisory Committee

Top of Page

Purpose: The Budget Advisory Committee is a standing committee with representatives from all stakeholders in the District.  Its purpose is to review the District's Budget, share the information with constituent groups and generate recommendations for superintendent's consideration in the Budget Development process.  Members will be asked to serve in rotation for a one to two year cycle.  Responsibilities will include attendance at meetings and sharing of information with their representative group and to represent the interests of all programs and services for the District as a whole. The Budget is fluid and therefore under constant "revision" as revenues and expenditures are clarified.  The Budget Advisory Committee is a vehicle to disseminate information to as many parents, students, staff and community members as possible.  The Committee is advisory in nature and will not have decision-making responsibilities.
