The Rochester City School District has partnered with Balancing act to provide the community with an online budget simulation tool to educate and engage the public in the annual budget process. This online simulation provides a look at our finances, including an overview and breakdown of revenue and appropriations that make up the district’s General Fund budget. The tool is currently loaded with the 2021-22 approved budget so families, staff, and community members can simulate adjustments to the budget and provide valuable feedback on our current funding allocations. Feedback collected through Balancing Act will help the District’s Board of Education, Finance and Leadership teams’ development and prioritization of funding allocations for current and future budget years.
