ACT AS A RESPONSIBLE RESOURCE MANAGER
Responsible and transparent budgeting is crucial to the success of a unified school district. The School Board should prioritize its resources so that the maximum amount of funding possible is placed in the hands of educators, while sustaining the operations of the district. The School Board must also responsibly oversee the school facility maintenance program so that newly built and renovated school facilities are maintained for future generations.
The Pledge: School Board members must commit to the following:
(1) A transparent and timely budget process that includes a plan to eliminate deficit spending by 2019;
(2) Adopting the policies and procedures required by Act 543 to oversee and administer funding for school facilities; and
(3) Maintaining a strong DBE policy that applies to all construction and procurement contracts.
