We have two important pieces of information to share with all PTAs and schools in Mecklenburg county…
- Come join us on Saturday at the Metro School, 405 S. Davidson Street, across from the Education Center downtown off MLK Blvd.; 8:30 am to 12:00 Noon, “CMS Budget Forecast: 2011-2012”. Dr. Peter Gorman, Sheila Shirley, and Eric Davis will present the preliminary budget proposal for the next school year, and will take questions afterward. Following the budget presentation, Dr. Bill Anderson with Mecklenburg Citizens for Education, www.mecked.org, will outline the complicated process from which our school system budget is derived.
- CMS has created a “Budget 101” book for community use to help better understand the CMS budget and process. The Community Guide to Understanding the CMS Budget is currently uploaded on the CMS website as a new resource. The book is an online-only resource and will not be available in print. CMS wishes to encourage you to use it as a point of reference as you are thinking about and discussing the CMS budget.
I hope you can join us this Saturday at the Metro School!
