The annual budget adopted by the Board of Education represents the Board's position on the allocation of
resources required to operate an appropriate system of education. All reasonable means shall be employed by
the Board to present and explain that position to all interested parties.
Each member of the Board and each Superintendent shall be sufficiently acquainted with the budget and its
underlying purposes to answer questions from members of the public.
The budget approved by this Board will be made available to the public in the form and at the places required by
law. A simplified form of the budget may also be prepared annually and may be sent to appropriate parties and
distributed to each person attending the annual budget hearing.
A simplified budget may include the expenditure in each major category of current expense for the current year
and the coming year and a summary of anticipated receipts as well as a brief explanation of significant increases
and decreases from the preceding budget.
The final adoption of the proposed annual budget shall be made by the Board in October.
