So I’m looking for budget hearing dates, please. Please submit them in the document below.
I’m compiling a spreadsheet of dates as I find them, and today, I found notices for hearings in thirteen of Alabama’s 137 school districts. Scroll down to see those dates.
Board-approved budgets are due to the Alabama State Department of Education by September 15, 2015.
Here are the dates found as of 4:00 p.m. on August 11, 2015.
Stay tuned for more info to entice you to attend your district’s school budget hearing this year.
