At the Minneapolis Public Schools, we are committed to building a system of sustainable financial management that includes a budget process that is disciplined, predictable and transparent. We will report regularly to the public and we will listen to our families, staff and community.

Upcoming Engagement Opportunities
Citizens Budget Advisory Committee – We are forming a Citizens Budget Advisory Committee to assist with providing a community lens to the budget process, as well as enhance overall transparency. The committee of 5-7 representatives will reflect diversity of thought, perspective and geography within Minneapolis. Representatives do not need to be experts in budgeting, finance or public school administration. Rather, they should have an interest in and commitment to the mission of Minneapolis Public Schools. They should also be well respected, trusted and have name recognition within their communities.
The commitment includes one meeting per month for 2 hours (or more if committee determines more time is needed each month) for a two year period and possible progress reports to the Minneapolis Board of Education.
