Welcome to the home page for the 2017-2018 Operating Budget and Capital Plan for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. As superintendent, I have the privilege and the responsibility of ensuring that all students receive the education they need and deserve. We strive to offer the best education possible so that every student graduates ready for college or career.
As a large, diverse district with a growing student population and facilities footprint, we have many needs. It is my responsibility each year to identify budget priorities that are most critical for our students. This is a collaborative process engaging our families, students, employees and community.
This page will provide links to schedules, meetings, decisions and other information about our operating budget and capital plan. Please visit this page regularly for the latest updates.
Thank you for supporting Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
