2024-2025 Litchfield School District Requested District Budgets

School budget process - The superintendent and department leaders present their requested budgets to the school board.  The school board reviews and makes adjustments as a board.  Any changes require a motion, a second, and a board vote.  The budget changes with every motion that passes.  Once the school board has made its changes it votes to recommend the budget for review by the budget committee.  This is presented to the budget committee as the school board budget.
