detailed Olympia SD budget released

We already knew that the Olympia School District Board of Directors approved the 09-10 budget; the summary of changes is available here [pdf].

More important from a long-term accountability and public relations perspective, yesterday the District, on its website, released one of the most detailed budget breakdowns I've ever seen [pdf].

Peter Rex, if you're out there, correct me if I'm wrong--but this seems groundbreaking.

Good observation, Jim. For the past couple of years, we have been adding more and more detail to our budget documents so the public can know how their money is being spent. This year's budget materials are the best yet.
