2018-19 District Budget

After years of deep cuts, SCS is proposing significant investments for the second straight year to drive student achievement. With input from students, educators and the public, we have identified high-leverage investments to support all students. Plus, to ensure greater equity, we're launching a new student-based budgeting model to meet the unique student needs of each school.

We’re proposing over
$66 million in strategic investments to support our schools and students!

Watch to learn how we’re investing in students.

We’ve re-prioritized funds and plan to use over $30 million in fund balance to help support these investments. However, we’re asking the County Commission for a funding increase:
