School District Forms

A school district budget is an annual plan for maintaining the financial health of the organization. All school districts are required by state law to adopt a balanced budget each year. The district budget serves a variety of purposes: It’s an estimate of district income to be received and a plan for district spending; it’s a policy document that reflects the vision and priorities of the district; and it’s an operational plan for making district decisions. School district budgeting is a constant process involving continuous planning and evaluation.
