2013-14 School Year Budget Proposals
The Olympia School District is in the process of developing its 2013-14 school year budget. This week Superintendent Cvitanich presented his proposed budget to the school board. The draft budget was built in part on the 1,300+ responses to our online community budget survey (thanks to everyone who participated!). The budget includes proposed enhancements in several areas, including additional supports and interventions for students, supports for teachers and other staff, and critical administrative needs. You will find more details about the budget survey results and the Superintendent’s proposed budget on the OSD budget webpage.
Next week we are holding two community budget forums to gather your feedback on the Superintendent’s proposed budget and hear how you think the district should prioritize its spending for the 2013-14 school year. We hope you will mark your calendars for one of these meetings:
- Tuesday, May 21 at 6:30 p.m. – Reeves Middle School, 2200 Quince St. NE
- Thursday, May 23 at 6:30 p.m. – Jefferson Middle School, 2200 Conger Ave. NW
If you have questions about the proposed budget or the upcoming budget forums, please contact the OSD Communications and Community Relations office at OSD@osd.wednet.edu or (360) 596-6103.
