2016/2017 Budget Documents

Each year the district adopts a budget that must be approved by June 30th. The school is required to make the budget available for review by the community. The School Board will hold a public hearing to receive community input on the budget at their upcoming meeting on Tuesday, June 21, at 7:00 pm. Community members may download the following budget documents for review or may come by the school office to review a printed version of these documents. If you are looking for a brief overview, consider looking at the "Budget Narrative" and the "LCAP Summary." Feel free to call the office and schedule a meeting with the Superintendent if you have specific questions regarding these documents or the budget.
