What will the PTA fund this year?

The CRS PTA provides support for our students through academic enrichment programs/resources/supplies/etc., technology investments, field trips, special events and more. We also support our school, teachers and staff through funds to pay for teacher supplies & incidentals not covered by the county, professional development and curriculum planning time, and more. (Note: chart below does not include appropriations.)

2017 - 2018 Budget

How is the budget planned?

Each year the Budget Committee (consisting of parent and staff volunteers) prepares a preliminary proposed budget based upon CRS PTA goals (as established by the board, based upon member input). The CRS PTA board reviews and amends this budget as required prior to voting on the budget. The annual budget is then presented to the CRS PTA membership for approval via voting. Any proposed changes to the budget of over $300 will be presented at a general membership meeting for approval of the amended budget.

What is Appropriations?

Depending upon the amount of funds raised through the CRS PTA during the school year, additional funds over the planned budget will be allocated to Appropriations. Proposals for potential funding will be solicited from parents and school staff. An Appropriations Committee (consisting of parents and school administration/staff) will review proposals and provide a proposed funding proposal to the CRS PTA board. The board will vote on the proposal and then present the proposal at a general membership meeting for approval. The appropriations process typically runs in the spring of each school year.
