Public forum gives residents input on BofE budget

A virtual public forum presentation is being offered for community members to learn more about the school district budget being developed by the Beaufort County Board of Education for the 2021-22 school year.

The district hopes the new virtual format will provide more people an opportunity to participate in the forum process. The virtual public forum video presentation can be viewed on the district’s YouTube page at any time through June 30, 2021: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDXEM7HLkIU&t=6s.

Viewers of the presentation have the opportunity to make comments and ask questions by submitting them to budget@beaufort.k12.sc.us or calling 843-322-5928. Responses to questions will be answered on the phone or followed-up shortly thereafter via email.

The district will receive community input over the next several weeks. Beaufort County Council’s current timeline calls for a third and final reading of the district’s budget on June 28.
