Responsible Budgeting that Balances our Priorities

The Palm Beach County School District budget for the 2020-2021 school year is approximately $3.8 billion. That is a lot of taxpayer money, and we must have the right budgetary oversight and transparency to ensure we are effectively delivering a world-class education to our students.

Properly managing those taxpayer dollars requires accountability, and spending it efficiently takes leadership that listens. Due to Covid-19, the budget will undoubtedly need to be more efficient than ever to account for unexpected expenses. State and local Chambers of Commerce, business groups and taxpayer oversight groups have endorsed me, because I have a plan for our school district budget that balances our priorities.

  • Encourage public participation in the budgeting process;
  • Guarantee taxpayer dollars are being invested efficiently;
