Budget/Enrollment Audit
The annual enrollment audit is critical to the budgeting process. I am pleased to report we had a successful audit with a final certified count of 190 students. We have a projected enrollment of 181 students for the 2019.20 school year. Ross LSAT members attended a DCPS budget engagement session last week. FY20 budgets are expected to be released in early February.
The LSAT will identify opportunities for community engagement soon.
