Budget Advisory Team

The Budget Advisory Team (BAT) is a diverse group of parents/guardians, staff, students, and community members who represent a wide range of perspectives that is meeting to review the district’s current and projected budget challenges and the factors that influence school funding and spending. The BAT will work together to develop recommended budget priorities, adjustments, and reductions to present to the School Board in early spring.
