Budget Process Resolution and Rules of Engagement

Budget Calendar
Background: Each September, the School Board begins budget development for the next fiscal year. This preliminary budget work session commences public work on the budget process and introduces the below key planning documents that will be used throughout the development of the FY 2022 Combined-Funds Budget and the FY 2022 – 2031 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Budget.

Budget Process Resolution and Rules of Engagement: Each year, the School Board establishes the process by which the Capital Improvement Program and Combined Funds budgets will be developed, discussed, amended and ultimately approved through the adoption of a budget process resolution and the associated rules of engagement. The rules of engagement were developed and approved to establish written guidelines that all School Board members must follow throughout the budget process regarding the submission of budget questions and add/delete recommendations.

Budget Calendar: Annually, the School Board adopts a budget calendar to define the timeframe under which the proposed budget will be prepared, discussed, and approved. The School Board approves the budget calendar as part of setting the work and meeting schedule for both the Combined Funds and CIP budgets.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board approves the Budget Process Resolution and Rules of Engagement for FY 2022.
