The Natrona County School District manages approximately $275 million annually. The general fund of $216.9 million provides for the day-to-day operation of the district, including the salaries and wages of more than 2,500 full and part time employees, the education of 12,665 students, and the operation of 33 buildings.

In addition, special funds provide for capital projects and maintenance of facilities, pass-through money for federal and state education programs, and the national food services program.

District committees work through a consensus process to establish budget recommendations each year. A draft budget is developed through the NCSD Business Services Division, and the NCSD Board of Trustees votes on a final budget each July, as required by state law.
