2024-25 Budget Development

Budget Overview

Our budget is a financial tool that guides the collection and distribution of resources in accordance with state law, OSPI (Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction) regulations, the School Board’s educational priorities, and District policies, as well as sound financial management principles.

Our fiscal year begins September 1st and ends August 31st. The budget process begins in late winter and culminates when the Superintendent submits a recommended budget to the Board, usually in June. This recommendation is based on projected enrollment, projected revenues and other resources, program requirements, input from principals, managers, community forums, Board Study Sessions, and any mandated reductions.
