Budget Survey Results

2024-25 Budget Survey

Robbinsdale Area Schools sent out three surveys seeking input about what the priorities for next year’s budget should be: one to families and community members, another to staff, and a third to high school students. The survey was completed by 976 family and community members, 561 staff members, and 453 high school students.

The survey asked respondents to prioritize several curriculum-related areas. Family/community members and staff agreed the top three areas should be:

  • Literacy/Reading Achievement
  • Math Achievement
  • Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM)

The top three curriculum-related priorities of high school students completing the student survey were:

  • Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) 
  • College and Career Readiness
  • Career and Technical Education

Next Steps

The Board will approve the 2024-25 budget in June.
