The Springfield Public Schools Budget Committee held its first meeting Thursday to discuss the fiscal year 2022 district budget. Superintendent Todd Hamilton presented the district's budget message and proposed budget to committee members. Due to the ongoing pandemic all budget committee meetings take place on Zoom conference with the opportunity for the community to watch online in real time.
The proposed budget is posted online to afford stakeholders the opportunity to review and provide written input as the process moves forward. The district is required to put forth a final adopted budget by June 30.
The district will continue to monitor the current economic environment in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and SPS remains committed to the same level of fiscal transparency it has always held. Updated information will be shared as it becomes available, and committee members will seek input that aligns with longstanding district values should decision points arise.
