Cycle-based Budgeting Toolkit - Edtech Pilot Framework

The Cycle-based Budgeting (CBB) calls for a new approach to funding new initiatives or programs as well as tackling ineffective existing programs. Specifically, it provides a solution that allows districts to: 1) demonstrate alignment with districts priorities, 2) describe budget needs and intended use, 3) identify target measurable outcomes (either academic or non-academic), and 4) articulate time needed to achieve the target outcomes, which becomes the cycle for the program to be implemented and reviewed. By addressing the challenges districts face for budgetary decisions through Cycle-based Budgeting, the tool empowers educations leaders to make informed and tough decisions, with a goal of more optimal use of taxpayer money to improve student learning.
