CBE Budget Process

Our corporate budget and financial information contains comprehensive information about how we fund our schools and maximize dollars directed to students in classrooms.

We fund our schools via a process we call the Resour​ce Allocation Method (RAM)​. The RAM is designed to allocate resources equitably while providing choice in the assignment and deployment of those resources to meet the unique needs of students within their schools. Not all resources for the school are allocated through the RAM. Other school costs are paid for centrally, such as utility costs, transportation costs, custodial services and many other costs that are managed on behalf of the school.

Parents or community members who would like to learn more about the RAM and how our school budgets, are invited to have a conversation with our principal. It is the principal’s job to develop the budget based on the RAM provided. School Councils are encouraged to provide advice about this process.​​​

RT @DFMSPeterson: We had a great time with week designing, building, and sharing our magnetic toys. Today we calculated how much our toy cost by adding up each of our materials. After figuring out the cost, we shared our toys with each other. We were pretty excited to show off our work! https://t.co/wxQpddWNje

RT @DFMSLivingstone: Sometimes teachers can’t resist jumping into a story either. Thanks for playing with us today @DFMSHandelsman ! #drfredamillerschool #wearecbe https://t.co/0W4BYBmkBJ

RT @dfmsSMITH: These days are a bit slippery but that means we can build cool structures from the ice sheets! Check out this ice bridge made my some kiddos in 3B! #wearecbe #drfredamillerschool https://t.co/qRmwgLgGUC

RT @DFMSPeterson: We have been working on graphing in math. This week students chose the their own question, collected the data and then graphed the results. Next, we worked on a tricky math problem trying to use clues to figure out the data and then graph it. https://t.co/vC3r5TXFv8
