The Budget Department is responsible for the following:

Budgeting: The department develops the district's annual budget, monitors spending throughout the year, and prepares financial reports for the board of education.

Position Control: The department sets procedures that manage personnel expenditures, such as the Request for Position (RFP) and Budget Code Change process, and ensures that the district's staffing is in line with its budget by reviewing the affordability of positions and reconciling staffing allocations.

Site Support: The department supports schools and departments with budgeting properly based on the Standardized Account Code Structure (SACS), reviews budget transfers within our financial system, monitors overspending and provides financial analysis.

Attendance: The department tracks student attendance, supports schools with proper record keeping in our student information system, and reports average daily attendance (ADA) to the state to generate funding for the district.
