McDONOUGH — The start of the second semester at Henry County Schools not only marks the halfway point in the school year, but it’s also the start of the fiscal year 2020-21 budget discussions.
As in years past, the budget planning will start with input from the community. A Community Conversation is planned for Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. in the district’s board room.
During the March 9 study session, Superintendent Mary Elizabeth Davis will present the fiscal year 2021 budget overview. It will be posted on the HCS website for the public.
From that point a tentative budget will be introduced and adopted by the board along with two hearings to give the community an opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions.
A final budget is expected to be adopted in May.
The following is the fiscal year 2021 budget calendar:
♦ Feb. 10, 6 p.m. — community conversation
