Welcome to the school year 2013-14 budget development site. This site is part of our effort to keep you informed of our progress in developing and recommending an operating budget for the upcoming school year. As work progresses, we will update the information here, including dates and times of town hall engagement opportunities, board of education worksessions and votes. Work on the budget will progress through May, with final budget approval expected in late summer.
The budget outlook for 2013-14 is not yet clear. Fiscal challenges exist for all of our funding sources -- county, state and federal. However, no matter the situation, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is committed to developing a budget recommendation that aligns with the board of education's mission and vision and advances the eight strategic goals outlined in The Way Forward.
We encourage you to participate in this important process, and thank you for your continued support of our school district.
