Strategic Budget Development

The standard annual budgeting process for many districts begins with reviewing the prior year’s budget and making incremental changes. Yet, to achieve transformational change so that every school can succeed for every student in California, the budget process needs to evolve and be fully integrated into the district’s annual LCAP and strategic planning processes.
