Phase one analyzes fiscal year-end data, November state revenue forecast, December issuance of the Governor's budget, and initial enrollment projections to develop an initial fiscal outlook for the following year.

The next phase engages the Fiscal Advisory Council (FAC) to continue assessing all district programs, and prioritize needs utilizing the three guiding lenses of the Strategic Plan, student data, and State of the School Reviews (SOSR). The FAC comprises five community members, four students, three bargaining groups, three principals, and three cabinet members.

The next step is the formal development of the operating budget for all funds within the state required form F-195. The process integrates all staffing and non-staffing program adjustments into the complex, state-defined format.

The culmination of this process will be the first reading of the 2017-18 operating budget on June 20, 2017, followed by a public hearing and adoption by the board on July 5, 2017.
