FY 2025 School Budget Development Calendar and Documents

The Portland Public Schools formally kicked off the development of the budget process for the 2024-2025 school year with a public budget forum on Feb. 6.

View Budget Calendar

The budget calendar includes the March 5 presentation by Superintendent Ryan Scallon of his recommended FY25 school budget to the Portland Board of Public Education. April 9 is the date when the Board – after weeks of considering the superintendent’s budget recommendations – votes to send its Board-recommended budget to the City Council. The Council sets the bottom line of the school budget, and after weeks of further review and discussion, votes on May 20 to send a school budget to referendum. Portland city voters get the final say on the school budget at the polls on June 11.

Community engagement around the budget is ongoing throughout the budget process. All Board and City budget meetings are open to the public and there are numerous opportunities for public comment. We encourage everyone to remain informed and engaged throughout the FY25 budget process!
