In preparation for developing next school year budget, we are continuing to use a planned, zero-based approach and want your input for supplies and materials, curriculum materials and other funds you would like to be set aside that are specific for your classes. Your input will be vital in ensuring we have enough funds budgeted to accomplish our mission to educate children.
The items you place on this form and their monetary values will be used to establish department, individual class and/or specials budgets next year. If you teach an elective, please record those requests as a separate line item. Please be thoughtful of your responses as there will be very little discretionary funds available next year. Also, we would like to maximize our usage of Federal Title Funding received through our public schools. As such, items which are used for literacy or STEAM should be clearly indicated in the “Other” column. If funding is available, we may try to leverage any remaining funds this year to meet your needs.
Lastly, I am asking you to rank each of your requests as either on a scale of 1 to 3 (1 = Need, 2 = Want or 3 = Wish). Please understand, not all of your item may be approved or allowed in next year’s budget. However, if it becomes necessary to trim supply costs, we will use the ranking you have indicated when making reductions.
