Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) require that all local governments, including Washoe County School District (WCSD), conduct an annual public budget process in which the agency must develop a balanced budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
Washoe County School District has already begun the process to prepare the Fiscal Year 2019-20 budget. Like last year, the Board of Trustees has directed staff to get an early start on the budget process with an emphasis on community feedback and involvement. This page is designed to provide information on how you can become involved in the process and make your voice heard.
2019 Budget Survey
Once again this year, parents and staff or WCSD students, as well as other residents of Washoe County, will be asked to complete a brief survey on WCSD budget priorities. Community input from last year's survey and five public community forums helped drive much of the budget discussions with the Board of Trustees. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey below to provide your views on this important issue.
2019 Community Forums
Washoe County School District will again conduct a series of community forums to review the results of this community survey and the proposed Fiscal Year 2019-20 budget. These community forums provide an opportunity for the public to interact directly with the Board of Trustees and District staff. Your input is valuable, and we hope that you can attend one of these meetings. The community forum dates and locations are listed below.
- January 24, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Towles Elementary School. Open to parents, staff, students, and community members.
