Just as your family must balance your checkbook, public schools keep a very close eye on expenses. Staff review the budget on a daily basis to ensure maximum return on each and every dollar.
Members of the Board of Directors receive a financial report each month. All financial documents reviewed by the School Board at the board meetings are available on our website for the public to view. In addition, state auditors review each school system’s financial records every year to ensure business practices meet state law.
