Schools to discuss budget calendar

SUWANEE - Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks will present the Board of Education with a proposed budget calendar for the 2010-11 fiscal year at the school board's meeting Thursday.

Although the budget for the next fiscal year won't be adopted until May, the school board will be asked to adopt the calendar next month, as program managers will start developing their budget requests shortly thereafter.

The monthly business meeting begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Instructional Support Center in Suwanee.

Those who wish to address the school board can sign up that evening to speak during an open session that begins at 6:30 p.m.
