At this early stage, some districts send out budget documents to key administrators, such as principals and department heads, to query them on expected program, staffing, equipment and other needs. Some districts complete this task before holding budget workshops with their respective boards of education (usually in January). Others will wait until January to get these data, while some may wait even longer.
