2019-20 Budget Development

Evergreen Public Schools is facing a budget shortfall for the 2019-20 school year. The shortfall is a result of several factors including a new state education model that reduced funding to school districts, a reduction in the local levy rate, declining enrollment and increased labor costs.  

 Las Escuelas Públicas Evergreen se enfrentan a un déficit de presupuesto para el año escolar 2019-20.

 Государственные школы Эвергрин столкнулись с дефицитом бюджета на 2019-20 учебный год.

The Board of Directors has implemented a public district budget process to move toward fiscal sustainability-and do so in a way that is reflective of Evergreen’s core values.  One of these long-time values is transparency and broad input when making difficult budget decisions.  

We are asking Community Budget Forum participants:

  • Do you have any specific concerns with any items on the EPS proposed budget list?
  • If EPS receives additional funds, which items would you like to see removed from the list?
  • Do you have ideas for reductions not on the list?
  • What questions do you still have?
