At the ESD 113 board meetings every month, the executive leadership shares the ESD’s progress on our budget schedule. At the budget hearing during their July 2020 meeting, Deputy Superintendent Cal Brodie reviewed the past year and provided a big-picture preview of next year. We plan our budget cautiously and try to think ahead to avoid any problems that may arise. History has shown that when the economy experiences a downturn, districts call on our ESD to increase support. We often see growth, but we cannot count on it.
The board invited questions or comments from the public on the proposed budget. Hearing none, the board adopted next year’s budget as presented.
