Budget Ambassadors wanted!

Gates Chili CSD recognizes the importance of voter input in the budget development process. In an effort to gain this valuable feedback, the district is once again holding its Budget Ambassador Program for the 2023-24 school year budget.

Ambassadors will review the preliminary 2023-24 budget as developed by the administration within parameters established by the Board of Education and recommend to the BOE any modifications they would like to see. Their recommendations, while highly valued, are advisory rather than binding and the BOE develops the proposed budget that will be presented to the community at-large.

Ambassadors will commit to serve on a committee which meets for three (3) two-and-a-half- (2.5) hour evening sessions with the superintendent and assistant superintendent for business on Wednesday, Feb. 15, Thursday, March 16 (and, if needed, Thursday, April 6) at 6 p.m. No experience is necessary, but ambassadors must be residents of the district.

A maximum of 15 ambassadors will be accepted into the program on a first-come-first-served basis. 
To apply to participate in this program, complete the form at gateschili.org/BudgetAmbassador by Friday, Jan. 13, 2023 at 5 p.m.
