The Norwalk Public Schools have been managing a student-based budget model for several years. Each of our school's student-based budgets are approved annually by the school's School Governance Councils.
Over the past four years our principals, SGCs, Finance and Operations Departments have continued to work to improve and enhance our school finance approach in an effort to further promote equity, transparency, and to promote school leader's with additional resource flexibility.
We believe that we have and will continue to learn about how to improve upon a very effective school financing model. We propose sharing our learning and growth around student based budgeting. Sharing this innovative approach to budgeting with our colleagues comes at an opportune time as districts grapple with ways to effectively operate school districts given municipal and state fiscal constraints.
