Learn about the APS Budget with an Innovative Tool
The vision of the Aurora Public Schools strategic plan, APS 2026: Faces of the Future, is that: every student shapes a successful future.
We know that in order to achieve our vision, we must continue to better align our resources to our work. Our district continues to challenge past budgeting practices and think differently about how to best serve our students and families.
We are also committed to being transparent with our community as our budgeting work continues. That is why we launched a new budget tool during the 2017-18 school year to show stakeholders where our funding comes from and how it is used to support our students. By using this tool, stakeholders can learn what it takes to balance our budget and the many local, state and federal statutes that impact it.
APS was one of the first school districts in the country to use the Balancing Act tool. Please explore the information icons, alerts and links provided in the tool to learn about our 2020-21 budget. The APS Board of Education adopted this budget on June 30, 2020.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the APS budget and how it aligns with our work to ensure that every student shapes a successful future.
