A school district budget should be a representation of its program philosophy. In theory, the program defining process precedes the mechanics of budget development. The program drives the budget and defines revenue - not the reverse. In practical application, however, theory must be modified to establish a balance between (1) available revenue and the community's acceptance of a resultant tax increase, and (2) student needs and the community's expectations for its public schools.
The public is invited to view and participate in the budget development process by attending board meetings and expressing its diverse views at designated times at public board meetings.
