The Budget Development Process for the 2011-12 school year is underway.
Wednesday, Jan 19th Supt. Moran presented her funding request to the School Board. The Board held its first work session on the budget Thursday, Jan 20th. Additional work sessions are scheduled for the next two weeks (see list of meetings below0.

The ACPS website offers links to all budget information on this one page.

The complete copy of this current funding request can be found there, as well as resource documents which provide further information. The full funding request runs more than 300 pages as much of the information is presented in a variety of ways, including with all state funding codes.

These two documents provide an excellent starting point for looking at the request:
  1. Superintendent’s Presentation (pdf of slide show presented Jan 19th)
  2. Overview (pdf of handout presented Jan 19th)
There will be many opportunities to provide input / feedback to the School  Board, both via the budget information page, through the Tele-Town Hall meeting and at the February 1st public hearing. Parent Council encourages all ACPS parents to participate and provide feedback.
