How should Atlanta Public Schools spend $777 million next year?

Atlanta Public Schools leaders have proposed a $777 million budget next year.

That’s $16 million more than this year, an increase of 2 percent.

But the district doesn’t expect to increase taxes to cover the higher spending, thanks mostly to higher local property values.

The board will hold a series of public meetings on the budget before a scheduled final vote on the budget in June:

  • April 27, Mays High School
  • May 2, Burgess-Peterson Elementary School
  • May 11, Long Middle School
  • May 18 Sutton Middle School

All meetings will be held from 6 -7 p.m.
