CCSD Making Progress

I have long criticized the District for its financial practices on a number of fronts: i.e., for excessive spending, for playing fast and loose with state law, and for not making its budgets available in a meaningful manner (as a handy illustration of this criticism, see my post of yesterday).

Today, however, I will give credit where it is due. The District’s tentative budget made its debut last evening, a summary of which has been duly posted on the CCSD web site. Although it is not a full budget, the summary is a considerable improvement over what has been available in the past.

According to the summary, the schedule for public hearings on the budget is as follows:
• 23 April – Gaines Elementary School (6:00 p.m.)
• 28 April – Alps Road Elementary (6:00 p.m.)
• 30 April – Central Office Board Room (6:00 p.m.)

Tentative approval of the budget and millage rate will take place on 09 April, with the final adoption of both slated for 04 June.
