Citizens' Budget Advisory Committee 2023-24 Budget Year 

The Citizens' Budget Advisory Committee's charge is to develop an understanding of the budget components through examination of revenue sources, total expenditures, fund balances and state aid. Discussions will revolve around District goals and long-term strategic planning as they relate to the budget.

Committee members will share their knowledge of the school district budget process with their constituents and bring community feedback to the meetings. The CBAC will ideally comprise a cross-section of the entire community in order to have representation from all constituent groups.

  • Candidates for the committee should (but not necessarily) possess an understanding of finance, budgeting and business and/or educational practices.
  • Candidates must be able to commit to four meetings scheduled for:
    • Thursday, January 19, 2023 - 6:00PM
