At 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.
Planning for the fiscal year 2015 (FY15) budget – which runs from July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2015 – has begun. We want to make sure that all MPS stakeholders have an opportunity to be a part of the process of maintaining a sustainable financial foundation to support academic achievement.
Last year’s challenging budget decisions now allow us to start this year’s planning with a structurally balanced budget. This year’s budget process will undoubtedly bring new opportunities to the table. We are hosting engagement sessions to inform stakeholders about the budget and allow them to share thoughts, ask questions and make suggestions before the budget is adopted by the school board in June.
Check out our Budget Basics brochure for an easy guide to our budget. It is also available in Hmong, Spanish and Somali in the resouce box on this page.
