HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii residents are being asked to express their views as the state Department of Education prepares a final budget recommendation for the Board of Education.
The public can weigh in by answering questions of a survey on the department's website.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the survey asks residents to identify key education spending priorities.
It also asks whether revenue-generating programs should be supported only by fees. Such programs include the A-Plus after-school program, summer school, athletics, adult education and school buses.
The DOE's chief financial officer, James Brese, says survey results will be incorporated into a budget presentation the department will make to board members this month.
