TONIGHT! 22/23 PTA Budget Meeting – Review Equity Survey Results and Proposed Budget @ Buckman Elementary
May 24 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for a PTA Budget Meeting where feedback on the proposed PTA 2022 – 2023 budget will be reviewed. This budget supports all of the PTA related activities and events throughout the school year and the intention is to support inclusiveness and equity at Buckman.

In advance of the meeting, please review survey results from the PTA Family Equity survey, as well as the 2022/2023 proposed budget. Questions to consider when reviewing:

–do the survey results seem to align with proposed areas of funding?

–is the budget inclusive of all groups, or does it seem to exclude certain groups?

–does the budget have negative impact on any group (or groups) within Buckman?

–does the budget strive to use funds equitably across various racial/ethnic groups, and socio-economic status?

–is there an area of the budget that we overlooked that should receive funding based on survey feedback?
