Transparency Reporting

Section 18(2) of the Public Act 94 of 1979, The State School Aid Act, has been amended and now requires each school district and intermediate school district to post certain information on its website. This Budget & Transparency Report is an opportunity to communicate with our community on how we use the resources that are provided to Charlotte Public Schools.  In addition, Section 388.1698a requires certain COVID-19 related items to be posted on the transparency page.

Below are the links to our Annual Operating Budget as adopted by the Board of Education, along with budget amendments as they are adopted. In addition, a projected budget for the following year is also presented below.
