ASBO awards school division for Excellence in Budget Presentation

The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has recognized Lethbridge School Division for excellence in budget presentation with the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the fiscal year 2023/2024.
ASBO International’s MBA and introductory Pathway to the MBA programs promote and recognize excellence in school budget presentation. Program participation enhances school business officials’ skills in developing, analyzing and presenting a school system budget. Participants submit their 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.
Divisions that meet the stringent program requirements may earn either the MBA or Pathway to the MBA (Pathway). Pathway is an introductory program that allows districts to ease into full MBA compliance.
“ASBO International’s MBA program provides school districts with tools and resources to develop a high-quality, easy-to-understand budget to share the district’s goals and objectives internally and with the community,” said ASBO International COO/Interim Executive Director Siobhán McMahon, CAE. “By participating in the programs, districts demonstrate their commitment to upholding nationally recognized budget presentation standards.”
