Reagan High School hosts a forum on the AISD budget tonight.

The Austin school district has a budget of almost a billion dollars to spend next year, and it wants your input on how to do it.

AISD is hosting two public meetings on its preliminary budget and facilities master plan this month. The first meeting is tonight, at Reagan High School, 7104 Berkman Drive, 6-8:30 p.m.

As KUT News previously reported, the 2012-13 preliminary budget would increase spending slightly while assuming the district will lose $8.7 million in federal money and $53.6 million in state funding.

Still, the budget shows financial  improvement from the previous cycle, which resulted in layoffs. The AISD board will vote on the budget for next school year in August.

The next public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 17, at Bowie High School.
