2020-2021 School Budget Meeting Dates

2020-2021 Las Fechas de Reuniones del Presupuesto Escolar

Development of a school budget actually begins back in June of each year. Through the thoughtful work of District administrators, program directors and staff, the process is a collaborative effort that results in the thorough examination of our educational programs and practices as well as the operations and infrastructure of the District. In addition, input is received from those in attendance at Board meetings who offer recommendations, and from those who write to the Board regarding the future direction of Chappaqua’s schools.

The following is a list of upcoming meeting dates and scheduled presentations regarding the 2020-2021 School Budget.
