The Association of School Business Officials International awarded the district its Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for excellence in budget presentation during the 2017–2018 budget year.
The MBA promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation. The award is conferred only on school districts whose budgets have undergone a rigorous review by financial professionals and have met or exceeded the program’s stringent criteria.
By applying for the award, school business officials learn best budget presentation practices and enhance their skills in developing, and presenting a school system budget.
“School business officials are responsible for ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent wisely, and that the district budget reflects student priorities and needs,” says ASBO International Executive Director John Musso. “The MBA program helps applicants create an accessible, accurate budget that builds trust with their community. This award recognizes districts that have made it clear they want students at the center of their fiscal plan and vision.”
