Meritorious Budget Award

For the thirteenth consecutive year, FHSD has won the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) from the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International. The award is conferred only to school districts whose budgets are found to meet or exceed the program’s stringent criteria after a rigorous review by independent evaluators.

The MBA criteria guide school business officials toward a quality school budget presentation by enhancing the school business officials’ skills in developing, analyzing, and presenting a school system budget. The FHSD budget is presented via narratives, charts, and graphs to be clear and transparent and aid the reader in understanding the District’s plan for allocating resources.

“I am proud to be associated with such an outstanding school district,” said Chief Operating Officer Kevin Supple. “This award is a positive reflection of the commitment by the entire Finance Department team to manage the District’s finances and other resources in the most effective and efficient manner.”

School districts can submit their applications and budget documents to a panel of school financial professionals who review the materials for compliance with the MBA Criteria Checklist and other requirements and provide expert feedback that districts can use to improve their budget documents.

The 2018-19 FHSD budget can be found by visiting the Finance Department web page.
