Thank you to everyone who submitted input through the HSA budget survey. Your responses helped inform the budget proposal and will be valuable as we navigate the next school year.
The proposed budget anticipates the planned return to 5 day per week in person schooling, and expenses are consistent with HSA budgets from recent pre pandemic school years. As an HSA Board, we decided that it was prudent at this time to remain conservative with fundraising projections in the budget proposal, and so the below reflects total revenue that would be an increase from the current year but still materially below pre-pandemic fundraising levels. As actual fundraising results come in next year, we will work to address any budget gaps to ensure we can maintain our support for the needs of the Lafayette school community. And if fundraising returns to pre pandemic levels we will continue to work with all stakeholders to identify spending priorities to best support our school community.
