FiFun

Proposed 2017.2018 Budget, to be discussed at the September 19 AAOCC meeting.

What is FiFun?

The Finance and Fundraising Committee, or "FiFun" for short, manages AAOCC spending in order to further the educational goals of the school. The committee creates the AAOCC budget, oversees school-wide fundraising and field trip and enrichment contributions, manages allocation of funds according to school needs, and sets financial policy and procedures.

FiFun meets monthly. All Ann Arbor Open parents/guardians, staff, and students are welcome to attend. Below is the schedule of Finance and Fundraising Committee meetings for the 2017-18 school year. Meetings are generally held a week or two prior to the related AAOCC meeting, although this can vary because of holidays, school vacations, etc. The meetings are held in the school media center from 7-9 pm, unless otherwise noted.

So where does all the money you contribute to AAOCC go?
The biggest use of AAOCC funds is field trips. We also spend money on classroom materials, library books, Focus Study supplies, hospitality events (e.g., eighth-grade graduation, the Open House, greeting new parents, etc.), art and music programs, the Science Fair and Science Olympiad, the Open School Conference, teacher continuing education, parent education programs, and intramural sports. A small amount is used for AAOCC administrative costs (insurance, supplies, etc.). For more info, watch the AAOCC's video, Where Does All the Money Go?

Questions?
Please contact AAOCC treasurer or Co-Chair.
