Budget Planning 2018-2019

  • The school budget must be based on the assessed needs of participating students as determined in the comprehensive needs assessment and detailed in the consolidated school plan to improve student achievement. The most efficient use of resources which support the plan and students' access to the core curriculum should be the rule. The budget should demonstrate a clear relationship between the planned supplemental instructional program and the planned expenditures.
    Each school is provided printouts which summarize historical demographic and budget information. This information identifies trends that have occurred over the past three years and may be useful in planning more effective instructional strategies. Schools are advised to restructure budget expenditures if students are not showing signs of academic improvement.

Program and Budget Handbook (English) - Online

Program and Budget Handbook The Program and Budget Handbook is provided to assist you in designing an effective instructional program for participating students. The instructional design for participants should enrich and supplement the core program provided to all students. The resources from categorical funds should be used to extend the quality and quantity of instructional time for program participants by using a variety of instructional strategies, such as early literacy; one-to-one tutoring; in-class intervention; before- and after-school interventions; additional summer or intersession classes; and professional development for all staff. The budget should be designed to provide services that supplement District-provided core services and assist in reducing barriers to student learning. The Local District (LD) must review and recommend budgets to Federal and State Education Programs Branch (FSEP) and Multilingual and Multicultural Education Department (MMED) for approval and implementation.

    (1) a completed and signed Option B form, and

    (2) all related School Budget Signature Forms for existing positions and Toshiba contracts
