“Budgets are built on the needs of students and staff, and those needs are demonstrated through budget discussions with each school, school district staff, the community and Board members,” Board Finance Chair Kathy Danek said. “We know that students engaged in their schools do better in their academic endeavors.”

The budget will provide $490 million for a variety of projects across Lincoln Public Schools, including a pay increase for staff while lowering the burden for taxpayers.
