The Chicago Public Schools FY2009 Budget Book is the proposed financial and policy plan of the Chicago Public Schools for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2008, and ends June 30, 2009. The fiscal year encompasses 12 months, as mandated by the 1995 Amendatory Act enacted by the Illinois legislature.
The FY2009 Budget Book includes line-item expenditure details, summary financial tables, and narrative overviews of CPS programs, goals, and financial policies and procedures. New for FY2009 the Budget Book contains snapshots of individual school budgets to provide readers with an at-a-glance view of school based budgets and demographics that impact the budgets. These snapshots are included in the School Based Budgeting section.
