Budget Committee Process


Download the Budget Request Form (2018-19)

Thank you to Lynda Sullivan, Amy Cooper, Angela Powell and Laurie Iba for volunteering to serve on this year’s PTA Budget Committee at our March 1st PTA Meeting.

There are three basic steps in developing a PTA budget:

  1. Determine the PTA’s goals and objectives and assign costs to them.
  2. Develop a revenue source to cover the costs of the goals and objectives.
  3. Reconcile or balance steps 1 and 2 with each other.

Do you Chair an existing PTA program or event at Alki? We look for your assistance in updating the budget requests for our PTA events each year. Any line item budget requests not submitted will be at the sole discretion of the Budget Committee to determine funding. Do you have a new idea or program you’d like to propose for PTA support? Present your proposal at the next general PTA meeting for membership consideration! As mentioned in Principal Deese’s Friday Flashback March 2nd, there was discussion around PTA funding keypad secured entry for our building at our March PTA meeting. This proposal will be brought to our membership at April 4th’s general membership meeting. Please join us to share your voice and vote to determine whether or not PTA supports immediate allocation of PTA funds towards this cause.

Please find PTA Budget Request Forms in the information rack outside the office or download at alkipta.com and turn them in to the PTA Mailbox by Monday, April 2nd or email to president@alkipta.com. The Alki PTA Budget process is as follows:

  1. Monday, Apr. 2 – ALL PTA Budget Request Forms are due in the PTA Mailbox or emailed to president@alkipta.com. Staff requests are submitted to Principal Deese.
