Instructions for Completing the Budget Narrative (PCSGP Form 6)

The Budget Narrative must provide more detail regarding the information provided in the Proposed Budget Summary and support actions and activities identified in the narrative response and the Charter School Work Plan/Activities.

  • The Budget Narrative must be grouped by object code series (e.g., 1000, 2000, 3000, etc.).
