The Natrona County School District, in partnership with all stakeholders, is committed to being fiscally responsible and purposeful with the resources and funds provided to us by our state and local community while maintaining exceptional educational environments for all.
Due largely to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the nation, combined with decreasing enrollment numbers, the Natrona County School District is anticipating upcoming budget reductions. As we work through the annual budget development process for the Fiscal Year 2021-2022, all aspects of the budget are under review.
As we work through the annual budget development for the Fiscal Year 2021-2022, the Board Budget Committee is requesting stakeholders to provide their input and feedback. (Click here for the current 2020-2021 Annual Budget)
We believe the steadiest way to overcome the challenges in front of us is through proactive planning, collaborative and including conversations, effective operations, and by maintaining our commitment to our priority budget development strategies.
The Board Budget development process continues to be guided by the following priorities:
- Maintain a focus on student learning and the District's strategic goals, funding essential functions and services.
- Achieve operational efficiencies and effectiveness
- Maintain a competitive compensation package
- Maintain facilities to avoid the effects of deferred maintenance and ensure safe and secure environments
Your feedback is greatly appreciated and valued as together, we work through the upcoming fiscal environment. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts and perspective.
We will continue to be transparent and collaborative in our approach towards creating strategies to do our part in remaining fiscally responsible while maintaining a priority focus on student learning and meeting the needs of all stakeholders while advancing the strategic goals, mission, and visionary culture of NCSD.
