I wanted to inform you of a schedule change for next week's Core Design Team's Community Open Houses. A&E Architects, Integrus Architecture and Billings Public Schools had originally scheduled a morning and evening community open house on Thursday, September 5, 2013. We've decided to reschedule since there are already several important events scheduled for the first few weeks of September.
The new date is Wednesday, September 25, 2013, in the Lincoln Center Board Room. Please check out the complete information on the right and make a point to attend one of these open houses.
Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend.
Terry Nelsen Bouck, Superintendent
Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members,
The Billings Public Schools budget fiscal year is July 1st-June 30th. There are two budget districts, one serving grades K-8 and one for grades 9-12. The elementary general fund for FY2014 is $72,049,475. The high school budget for FY2014 is $38,142,969. The Board of Trustees adopted the budgets on Monday, August 19th. The goal for this school year will be to find efficiencies of one percent savings in the budgets. This will be a District-wide effort and will involve all stakeholders. The budgets directly support teaching and learning in the District so we can provide the city of Billings with the best educational resources possible.
