Baker 5J parents are invited to attend the January Parent Advisory Meeting. This month’s topic is School Finances and Budgeting. What drives Baker School District decisions about financial investments in programs and facilities? What strategic investments have they made so far? How does the budget process work? What avenues are available for parents to provide input into those decisions?
The January Parent Advisory Meeting will address these and other budget related questions during this first meeting for 2018. The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 – 7:00 pm on Wednesday, January 17 at the Baker School District Office at 2090 Fourth Street.
Baker School District invites parents to provide input and participate in conversation about school topics via monthly Parent Advisory meetings. Parent Advisory is open to all parents/guardians of Baker 5J students. This is the third Parent Advisory meeting of the 2017-18 School Year.
