I'd like to suggest a topic for the blog that is really time-sensitive since school budgets are being proposed next week and, I believe, submitted to the district on April 2nd.
While budgets are always in flux to some extent (money for XYZ is gone today, back tomorrow), I'm mostly interested in understanding the role of the SSC, the Principal and parents in the process of evaluating the appropriate allocation of resources for a school. As a parent of a school whose demographic is shifting dramatically due to the introduction of an immersion program, the forces of "old" and the forces of "new" are not entirely in-sync. What is the right approach for parents to make sure their voices are heard? How does the SSC operate in other schools around budget issues?
