• Providing high-quality education to more than 10,000 students is our priority and something we take seriously as responsible stewards of public funds, efficiently and effectively allocating District resources wisely.

    To help provide a better understanding of Sumner-Bonney Lake School District's budget and what is required to educate our student population, we've put together a high-level overview of Washington state school funding and financial information specific to our District in a clear and concise manner. We hope this information explains, in simple terms, the complexities of the District’s budget process and gives you an idea of where our money comes from, what it pays for and how we use it.
