School funding depends on public support

Collaboratively developing budgets in Allovue builds understanding and consensus with staff around resource decisions. If you need to further engage communities in the budget process or ask voters for additional funding, you can share a version of Balancing Act with them so that they can see what educators recommend and then weigh the tradeoffs with other resources. 

Balanced budgets require tough decisions

With Balancing Act, districts can get feedback on a variety of budget areas and decisions, all within the constraints of annual revenue. Engage your community around resources and initiatives such as: 

  • Reducing class size
  • Professional development
  • Facility improvements
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Art and music education
  • Teacher salaries
  • Employment benefits

  • Involve employee groups and students in budget decisions
  • Test and build support for new revenue measures and fees
