Budget Summary | Fiscal Year 2019-2020
This executive budget summary was created to translate complex budget information into a concise and easy-to-read document. The budgeted expenditures and revenues for the 2019-2020 school year are presented to communicate the District’s financial priorities and plans. Through the various tables, charts, and graphs, you’ll learn about the source of our financial resources and our plan for expenditures.
Throughout the budgetary process in the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District, student achievement and safety remain our top priorities. As a result, the 2019-2020 budget continues to reflect the District’s strategic plan, Vision 2020, of directing resources to the classroom and increasing student performance, improving fiscal accountability, continuing to increase the use of technology, continuing improvements to our facilities, and maintaining our schools as safe learning environments.
Due to the statewide implementation of a new employee benefits program, the District has budgeted an additional $2.2 million for 2019-2020.
I look forward to a successful 2019-20 school year, providing a great place to learn for every student, every day, in every classroom.

Budget Process Summary
The General Fund budget is driven by student enrollment, which determines revenue estimates and staffing allocations. The budget team then meets with building and department heads to determine final staffing and operating costs as well as expected state and federal grant awards. The minor fund budgets (Capital Projects, Debt Service, ASB, and Transportation Vehicle) are added to the full district budget. The budgets are balanced, reviewed and submitted to the school board for approval and final adoption.
