Lancaster ISD 2017-18 Budget Survey is Open for Your Input

As Lancaster ISD works to develop the 2017-2018 district budget, we are seeking your input.

We will review and utilize your feedback for future conversations, plans and decisions related to the development of the 2017-2018 Lancaster ISD Budget and beyond.

Lancaster ISD operates within the constraints of a finite amount of resources on an annual basis. As such, we must prioritize the funding of our programs and initiatives based upon their impact on student outcomes and financial sustainability.

Our intent is to obtain input from all of our stakeholders to gain sufficient insight into our community’s perspectives around these key resource allocation decisions.

We invite you to provide your input on this survey from now until April 28, 2017.
