Dr. Bo Yan is the chief architect of the Cycle-based Budgeting (CBB) model implemented in Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), the largest public school system in the state of Kentucky with more than 100,000 students and an annual budget of 1.5 billion dollars. During the past three years, Dr. Yan collaborated with his colleagues to develop and implement the CBB model in JCPS, which aligned $75.8 million investments ($55.4 million new spending and $20.4 million existing spending) with the district’s strategic plan and set a review cycle for each of the CBB accounted investments.

Dr. Yan created this web site and toolkit to share their practice and lessons learned along the journey. Please feel free to use the content on this web site. To cite the toolkit, please use the following suggested reference:
