Budget Information
Superintendent's Budget Reports

In concert with the Wayland Public Schools’ Core Values and Mission Statement, the Wayland School Committee presents these Budget Principles to provide guidance for the Administration in developing annual operating and capital budgets.
  1. Deliver a high-quality educational program to Wayland's children.
  2. Place highest budgetary priority on personnel, budgeting for staff:pupil ratios in accordance with prevailing district policy, and on the supervision thereof, with an overall expectation that any budget reductions minimize the impact on student learning.
  3. Provide for the continued development of programs as designated in the curriculum review process and explore the possible creation of new programs.
  4. Respect the fiscal priorities of the Town by considering cost reduction, new revenue, and program redefinition, with attention given to such considerations as staff patterns, operational efficiencies, and cooperative ventures.
  5. Budget realistically, based on the needs of the system without the benefit of a contingency fund, for non-personnel items including materials, technology, maintenance, cleaning, and general operation of all school buildings.
  6. Advocate for significant equipment and building capital needs.
