Wylie Independent School District Presents a New Kind of Budget
Wylie Independent School District, in Texas, had grown rapidly, but its budget had not grown in step with its enrollment. In order to meet its student learning goals despite the increasing financial scarcity, Wylie started on the Smarter School Spending journey. Wylie sought to better align the entire budget with its academic priorities. One way of doing so was a new budget presentation that helped the school board better appreciate the connection between academic goals and financial resources.
