Budget Development for 2017-18

2017/18 Budget

The budget development for the 2017-18 school year began in May 2017. 

The Sherwood School District Budget Committee met to receive the Superintendent's Budget Message and to review the proposed budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year on May 25, 2017.   The proposed budget was unanimously approved by the Budget Committee.  

The community is invited to learn more about the District's preparation for the 2017-18 budget, as well as bond-funded projects at a Community Forum, scheduled for May 30, in the Laurel Ridge Media Center, at 6:00pm.  The first portion of the forum, 6:00-7:30pm, will focus on bond-funded projects in all categories (not just the high school), and the last part of the meeting, 7:30-8:00pm, will address the development of the 2017-18 budget.

The District presented the recommended budget to the Board of Directors at the June 14th Board meeting, during which time the Public Budget Hearing was held, to include the opportunity to hear public comments, of which there was none.  The Board of Directors unanimously approved adoption of the 2017-18 Budget as recommended by the District and approved by the Budget Committee, without modification.  To view the Adopted 2017-18 Budget, click here.

2014/15 Public Forums

Sherwood School District held two community forums this year in order to share information about various topics of interest to our parents, students and community members, as well as provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions and share their thoughts with us.

The first forum was held on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 and focused on the 2014/15 budget and efforts currently underway relative to long range planning (enrollment, facilities, financing, etc.).  The second forum, which took place on April 14, 2104, included a presentation about the Common Core State Standards and offered time for Q&A with Superintendent Cordie and her executive team.

Thank you to those of you who attended these events; we enjoyed the rich conversation.
