The Budget Section of Fiscal Services coordinates, develops and compiles the District Budget for adoption. The staff in this section assist school sites and departments in performing budgetary transfers and revisions and proper coding of requisitions using the Standardized Account Code Structure (SACS) as well as providing budget building and maintenance training.


Our Budget Analyst maintains the position control system, working closely with the Human Resources Department to monitor budgeted positions. Position control is an especially important aspect of the budget as salaries and benefits represent over 85% of the total General Fund expenditure budget.


Budget revisions and transfers submitted by school sites and department are submitted to the Board of Trustees monthly for their approval. The approved revisions and transfers are then incorporated into periodic reports due to the State including the First Interim Report, Second Interim Report, Estimated Actuals and Unaudited Actuals.


The Budget Analyst for Construction builds and maintains detailed project budgets, tracks related contracts and expenditures and produces reports to the Board of Trustees, the Bond Oversight Committee, the District construction team and state agencies.
