Problem: Many students in Hampton Middle School think that some departments get money that they don't need, while others don't get enough. Also, some people think that students need a stronger voice in decisions that have to be made.

Total Budget: $41,565,500

Hampton Budget Survey:

We surveyed some of our fellow classmates about which programs they want money to be donated to. Most people wanted more toward athletics, for example sports team. Both the arts and music and technology were also close contenders for receiving more money. Academics and field trips both recieved a few votes as well. Finally, gym equipment and maintenance didn't receive any votes for funding.
