2023-24 Four Year Budget Summary

Just as your family must balance your checkbook, public schools keep a very close eye on expenses. Staff review the budget on a daily basis to ensure maximum return on each and every dollar.

Members of the Board of Directors receive a financial report each month. All financial documents reviewed by the School Board at the board meetings are available on our website for the public to view. In addition, state auditors review each school system's financial records every year to ensure business practices meet state law.

The 2022-23 Stanwood-Camano School District budget was approved by the Board of Directors at the August 16, 2022, regular school board meeting. A public hearing is scheduled during meeting.

Prior to adoption of the 2023-24 budget, scheduled for August 22, 2023, the Board will hold a hearing for the purpose of receiving comments from the public on the 2023-24 budget. Any person may appear at the hearing and be heard for or against any part of the 2023-24 budget or the four-year budget plan.

Budgets are created throughout the year.
