Public Input on Proposed Budget

On the Thursday, April 7th board meeting agenda is "Item 3.1 Public Input on 2022-2023 Budget". This Item comes up as the very first item of business after the board re-convenes after the executive session.

I looked for the proposed Budget and couldn't find it. I noticed on Facebook that others were looking for it and could not find it.

So I wrote to the Richland 2 Ombudsman, and Libby Roof replied, in part,

My first thought was WHY is the District holding a public input session for a Budget that does not yet exist. Interested and concerned community members, parents, teachers and staff might like to know on what they will provide input. Don't you think?
