Each year, the Methow Valley School District facilitates a transparent and inclusive budget development process that invites broad stakeholder participation into the process. This year MVSD kicked off its annual Budget Development Process by encouraging students, parents, staff, and community members to participate in the first-ever, Dream Big Event.

Participants had the opportunity to provide input into what the district should prioritize as it attempts to strategically align the investment of its limited resources with the shared vision, beliefs, and learner outcomes of the community.
