Budget news & information

Citizens' Budget Advisory Committee (CBAC)

Recognizing that broad community participation in the district budget development process is vital to ensure public support of the district’s program, the Guilderland Board of Education annually convenes a Citizens’ Budget Advisory Committee (CBAC) to review the district administration’s budget proposal and to make recommendations to the Board regarding its educational and economic impact.

Membership on CBAC is open to all interested residents and representatives of community organizations. Members of the Committee will be expected to attend all meetings, be prepared by reviewing provided materials, and engage in constructive dialogue about the issues and elements of the district financial plan.
