To further enhance our commitment to quality schools at a great value to taxpayers, school district leadership, in consultation with the community members and the Business Advisory Committee, wanted to create something that will serve as the foundation to help us achieve not only the goals set forth in the 3 Point Plan for Financial Stability, but also an overall mission that reflects the community’s values in ensuring that the district is using the taxpayers’ money efficiently and transparently.
To address these needs, we have created the Canal Winchester Schools Taxpayer Bill of Rights. It’s community driven and it represents the district’s pledge to conservative fiscal management.
Tax Payer Bill of Rights
· Canal Winchester Schools will continue to find innovative ways to save taxpayer money while still striving for the excellent academic standards we have set for ourselves.
· Canal Winchester Schools will reaffirm its commitment to fiscal transparency and accountability. All budget information will be readily available and easy to access for every citizen.
· Canal Winchester Schools will reaffirm its commitment to achieving the goals laid out in the 3 Point Financial Plan and to constantly strive towards maintaining financial stability and quality schools.
Financial decisions are not made in a vacuum or as challenges arise, rather, our school leaders and board of education remain sensitive to the fiscal realities of today, and have an action plan to address any challenges ahead. By issuing the Canal Winchester Schools Taxpayer Bill of Rights, our community will be confident in knowing that all financial decisions will be made with these priorities in mind.
