Where does all the money go in the Lake Washington School District? The annual budget is approved by the Board every August (Form F-195) and monthly summaries of apportionment can be found on the OSPI website, but it is impossible to figure out how money is being spent.
As a board member, I will require the superintendent to publish the monthly expense itemizations with the school board minutes.
I will contact our State legislators to better understand how McCleary money is being distributed to school districts and how we are allowed to use the funds.
I will make sure that your tax dollars are being spent efficiently for education and that taxpayers know where the money is going.
