SD20 looking for input on nexts year’s budget

The board of education is in the middle of hammering out next year’s budget and is looking for input.

The board of education is in the middle of hammering out next year’s budget. This year, as part of the budget development process, Superintendent Greg Luterbach noted the board is including an online survey for members of the public, parents and staff to share their thoughts regarding the budget.

Deadline for completing the survey is April 5.

On the website you can review background information regarding the budget, complete an online survey and follow the process over the next seven weeks.

In April, Luterbach said, the board will share its list of potential reductions and revenue generation ideas under consideration.

Then, on April 22, at Trail Middle School the proposed balanced budget will be presented by the superintendent for the board’s consideration.

“It is our intent to have a balanced budget passed by the Board on Friday May 3,” Luterbach wrote.
