FCPS Superintendent to Announce Recommended 2013 Operating Budget

 

The following information was sent to us by Dian Nelson: 

 

Frederick County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Terry Alban is polishing her recommended FY ’13 operating budget in preparation for its January 4 public debut.

“Ever since I came to Frederick County in July, I have been impressed with the tremendous return on investment this school system offers,” Dr. Alban said. “I want to begin my first budget season with FCPS by clearly illustrating how instructionally effective and fiscally efficient we really are. My hope is to dispel commonly held myths and replace them with realities.”

Dr. Alban describes her budget recommendation as “fiscally responsible. Formulating it required adjustments and reallocations to mitigate the increases I consider essential.”

For the first time, the unveiling will occur outside a regular Board of Education meeting – a full week before the public meeting when the Board is scheduled to open budget deliberations.

The budget briefing will begin at 7 p.m. in the Board Room at the FCPS Central Office, 191 South East Street, Frederick.  The public is encouraged to attend.
