2021-2022 Budget

 

Over the last four years, the cost of educational services in SoWashCo Schools has continued to outpace the funding available to fully support our operations. The COVID-19 pandemic has created additional unexpected costs, declining enrollment districtwide and uncertainty for state aid. As a result, SoWashCo Schools has entered into a budget adjustment process to reduce expenses and increase revenue.
