2016-2017 Budget Workshop
Attached are the following documents:
- Budget Presentation PowerPoint (20,000-foot view of the budget)
- Draft F-195 Budget Summary (Condensed Version of Full Budget Document) (10,000-foot view of the budget)
- Draft F-195 Budget Document (Treetop view of the budget)
- Organization & Financing of Public Schools (A primer published by the state)
Please take a look at the presentation to get an overview of the 16-17 budget. The F-195 Budget Summary includes detailed revenue and expenditure information on14-15 actuals, 15-16 budget and 16-17 budget figures. This will give you a wealth of information about the district’s finances, comparing the 3 years. In the past, I have identified increases or decreases between years and provided a document with explanations for the differences. This has resulted in quite a lot of extra work for me, especially since the budget document includes the 3-year comparison. I would like you to review the detailed revenues and expenditures. After the presentation, we can go over your specific questions during the meeting.
The F-195 Budget Document is over 200 pages. In the spirit of transparency, I wanted to include the entire document. RCW requires that the budget is made available to citizens, so a copy is also posted on the district website and a hard copy is available in the district office for anyone who is interested.
