Summary: The annual ACPS budget development survey closed on December 17, 2017. A total of 2,247 students, parents, employees, and community members responded to the online survey.

The survey gauged respondents knowledge of the budgeting process and also asked respondents to consider eight priorities and rank their top three in order of importance. In addition to teacher salaries, other options included competitive salaries to attract and retain high-quality support staff; increasing career and workforce readiness opportunities for students; fully funding all student experiences such as field trips; increasing student health and wellness services; increasing funding for elementary after-school programs; increasing funding to provide students with transportation to programs outside their home schools; and continuing to expand in-home internet access for those students who currently are unable to access commercial broadband services.

Results of the survey will be shared with the board as they prepare to hear the Superintendent's Funding Request in the near future.
Recommendation: Receive for information.
