• The Budget and Program Evaluation Committee (BPEC) focuses on optimization of resource allocation for programs based on researched best practices and program alignment with student success. The committee reviews public school funding, the district’s current finances, and potential budget additions, reductions, and reallocations of funds. The committee includes two school board members. BPEC meetings are typically held on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month from 5-6:30 pm.
