It's that time of year again! Time to review our programs and activities as we proceed with our annual planning and budgeting process. Included is the timeline of our Integrated Planning and Budgeting process. At Leeward, we use the ARPD as our core planning document, so we ask all instructional programs, educational units, and support areas to complete one.
