Tight Times, Tough Choices: Community Input into the District Budget

Residents of Upper Darby School District are invited to participate in
workshops about how to close an anticipated gap in the 2013 – 2014
school district budget. These workshops offer a chance to learn more
about the District budget, work through different ways of balancing the
District budget, identify tensions and trade-offs in the budgeting
process and develop ways to address those tensions and trade-offs. The
results of these forums will include residents’ priorities, a sense of
the trade-offs among them and a set of values-based principles to help
guide decision-making. The School Board/Administration has agreed to
respond to the community by reporting how they used the forums in their

Schedule of Community Budget Forums
