Phase I - Inform the Superintendent's Funding Request (presented to the School Board on Jan. 22, 2013).
Phase II - Inform the School Board's Funding Request (presented to the Board of Supervisors on Mar. 11, 2013).
The development cycle for the 2012-13 budget began in August 2012 and ends in April 2013. The process includes gathering input from the various stakeholders in the school system and community.
The Superintendent's Budget Advisory Committee reviews all budget requests, aligns budget requests to the Division's strategic plan, and prioritizes requests as part of its recommendation to the Superintendent.
The Superintendent then forms a Funding Request that is presented to the School Board. The School Board reviews the Superintendent's Funding Request during a series of work sessions and a public hearing, and makes its own adjustments to the spending plan.
Finally, a School Board Funding Request is presented to the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors who make the final decision regarding the amount of revenue to be allocated to the school system.
