Understanding the Local Education Budget
Presented by Erika Haynes, Director of Community Engagement
Connecticut School Finance Project
Thursday, January 24
Please join Parents and Teachers of Braeburn (PTB) for a valuable, informative presentation.
This workshop is designed to prepare you for budget season. It is meant to help community members better understand what “the budget” means. Beginning with understanding the flow of funding from the state to local districts, we will then look at the local education budget. Where do I find our budget? How long is the budget? How detailed? What can I easily take away from it? What is difficult to find in the budget? How do I ask questions about the budget and who do I ask? We will take a look at some of the documents that we can find online so participants can become comfortable participating in the local education budget discussion.
