The development of a district school budget is a thoughtful, year-long process that includes careful long-term planning. This multi-faceted process includes budget preparation, presentation, review by the Board of Education and community members, formal budget adoption, further sharing with the community, and Board election.
During this process, there are a variety of meetings held by the Board of Education including Budget Work Sessions which are used to gather information and ask questions about particular sections of the budget. These sessions are held outside of formal Board of Education meetings and are used to develop the budget. Most decisions will be discussed during these sessions.
The PCSD community is invited and encouraged to attend Budget Work Sessions, as they are open to the public.
