Take Our Budget Survey!

Each spring the Olympia School District plans and enacts its annual budget. One of our goals is to gather as much community feedback as possible. As part of that effort, we are pleased to offer an online survey to seek your opinion about where the District should concentrate its resources. The information you provide will be used to help the Superintendent and School Board build and implement the District’s 2014-15 school year budget. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey you will find an open-ended question where you can offer additional ideas and feedback. We invite you to take the survey at the link below. Thank you for helping us set spending priorities for your local school district!
