Fiscal Authority

The Board of Education believes that it has an obligation beyond that imposed by law to work with the appropriate fiscal authority at all stages of the budgeting process in order to develop the kind of understanding of the needs of the schools and the students which will work for the betterment of education in our community.

The Board of Education accepts the legal requirement that it meets and negotiates with the fiscal authority, and further, it will do everything in its power to cooperate with the fiscal authority toward the development of a sound fiscal base for the operation of the schools.
