District Budget Advisory Committee 

The District Budget Advisory Committee will be an ad hoc committee charged with developing recommendations to share with Superintendent Phelps with respect to imminent budget challenges facing Poway Unified School District.  The committee’s purpose is not to audit the District’s financial operations, but to become familiar with the District’s financial data in order to offer suggestions to help improve the District’s fiscal position moving forward. Ideally, these recommendations would be put forward by the committee by consensus.
  • Assist the District in analyzing current/past expenditures with a view toward increasing efficiencies and savings
  • Review District appropriations, expenditures, and programs in anticipation of 2018-19 Budget development
  • Focus on non-negotiable areas
  • Generate ideas for possible opportunities for:
    • Potential savings
    • Shared services
    • Alternative revenues
  • The District will cooperate and assist the committee by making available relevant and requested, non-confidential, financial information.
  • The committee will provide a report of recommendations to the Superintendent and/or Board of Education.
  • All policy-making and financial authority remains, as it must by statute, with the Board of Education.
The committee consists of 3 current District & School Site Administrators, 2 District Certificated Staff Members, 4 Parent/Guardians, 2 High School Students, 2 Representatives of Bargaining Units (PFT/PSEA), 2 District Classified Staff Members, and 4 Community/Business members.
