ACPS budget priorities, areas of focus, public hearings and more
Development and planning of the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) budget are a year-long undertaking consisting of discussions and modifications. The budget approval process features three significant milestones; the Superintendent's Presentation of the Proposed Budget, the Adoption of the Approved Budget, and the Adoption of the Final Budget.
The ACPS budget is funded in two parts; Combined Funds (CF) and Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Budgets.
The Combined Funds Budget consists of three separate funds; Operating, Grant and Special Projects, and School Nutrition.
The Operating Budget: Approximately 88% of expenditures comprise salaries and benefits, with the remainder consisting of non-compensation costs.
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Budget: Separate from the CF Budget, the CIP budget funds capital improvements and modernization projects.
Budget Priorities and Areas of Focus
The School Board Budget Priorities align with the ACPS 2025 Strategic Plan Goals to guide decision-making throughout the budget process. The Superintendent develops Focus Areas based on these School Board Budget Priorities.
