Survey will gather community’s input for 2019-20 budget reductions

Vancouver Public Schools officials asking for input from district families, staff and community members

VANCOUVER — Vancouver Public Schools has a projected budget shortfall next year that will necessitate reductions in staff and support. The overall deficit has been lessened thanks to a one-time addition of $6.5 million in the recently released state’s consensus budget. At this point, the district is anticipating an $8 million shortfall.

The district is asking for input from district families, staff and community members to prioritize the reductions in a survey that opens Monday. Participants will be asked to suggest preliminary/recommended reductions from a potential list identified over the past three months.

Take the survey now.

Survey timeline

  • The survey will be open May 6-14.
  • Results of the survey will be released May 20.
  • District advisory committee discussion will take place May 23.
  • Final budget recommendations, reflecting the survey results, will be made at the May 28 school board meeting.
