Rationale

Each local board of education is required to approve a Tentative Budget on or before May 30 each year.  The purpose of this law is to assure that the local board of education has an opportunity to review all proposed revenues and expenses before the upcoming school year begins.  this is the 2nd formal step in developing the 2020-21 annual working budget.

The 1st step in January was simply a review of projected revenue and expenses with no formal action by the board.  This step involves a more specific presentation of the proposed 2020-21 budget and involves formal action by the Board to adopt the budget with such changes as deemed appropriate by the Board.  The remaining formal steps will come after the close of the current fiscal year when the certification of the value of taxable property is received.

Also attached are the salary schedules for the 2020-2021 school year.
