     Your input is important. As the district looks to prepare a budget for the upcoming year, we welcome your ideas to control costs or increase revenues. Feel free to give us your ideas at info@scasd.org

    The budget process is outlined in the Budget Timeline

    Our 2017-18 budget development process includes a review of the financial results from 2015-16, as well as multi-year budget projections. Refinement of these projections will continue throughout the budget process as the 2016-17 projections become clearer.
