Reflection
Let’s talk about the decisions you
made and why?
Just like real life budgets, school
budgets have limitations. The
amount of money a school receives
is based on the number of students
enrolled and only allows for SOME of
the initiatives to be accomplished.
Think about…
Your budget was just cut by 20%, so
now you only have $8,000 to spend.
What of your priorities should get cut
and why?
