About this project


The purpose of this project is to execute a process ending with a balanced FY25 budget that has been developed based on SPPS Achieves identified focus areas as well as student needs, community values, known constraints/influences and sound financial decision-making.

As part of SPPS Achieves, we are committed to making budget decisions that are based on data and reflect our community’s values. This work is especially important now because of the ending of COVID relief funding (ESSER/ARP) and the impact this will have on district budget decisions. As a result, we want to be sure the FY25 budget process is managed with integrity and is clear to all stakeholders.
