LAUSD: First Interim Financial Report, Fiscal Year 2013-2014

This is what LAUSD LCAP advisory committee members will be asked to contribute their budget priorities to. Intimidating, isn’t it? Keep in mind, the school budget process is supposed to be iterated publicly. That means budgets are to be posted on district websites for all to see.

The various versions of the LAUSD budget will probably be produced in more simplified form so that lay members of the public can actually digest it. Nevertheless, there are probably some LAUSD parents and community members who have the expertise to look at the raw budget that school finance professionals use as working documents. If so, comments from those folks would be much appreciated!

Second interim budgets are due some time after March 10, 2014.

School districts are now in the process of gathering information from parents, teachers, and community members to help shape program priorities for the coming 2014-2015 year.

Is your district involving you? How’s it going?
