Develop a Budget & Assure Financial Oversight
Financial resources support the delivery of education. Boards have an important role in assuring the education system has sufficient resources to achieve its mission and in providing high-level financial oversight to assure that resources are properly managed on behalf of taxpayers.
The Board must devote time each year to establishing the importance of its financial oversight responsibility and to conveying the importance of prudent management of resources by all staff in the supervisory district/union. Managing financial resources responsibly is foundational to achieving the educational mission.
