Anchorage School Board approves upper limit for FY2012-13 budget
At the Monday, October 24 meeting, the Anchorage School Board approved an operating budget upper limit of $723 million for the Anchorage School District's fiscal year 2012-13. This includes a $9.5 million decrease in expenses as compared to this year's budget. It leaves a $20 million gap of currently projected expenses to revenues.
In creating the budget projections, the district assumed that there will be no funding increases from either the Municipality of Anchorage or the State of Alaska.
District administration will develop a proposed budget over the next few months, using the value-based budgeting process that was begun last year, and will present a balanced budget to the board in January.
Those wishing to provide input on the district budget can submit a comment on the district website at
Additional opportunities for feedback will be announced as they become available.
