Five years, five budget awards for Metro Schools
Five in a row. For the fifth consecutive year, Metro Schools has won the Meritorious Budget Award from the Association of School Business Officials International.
The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has awarded Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools its Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for excellence in budget presentation. The award is conferred only to school districts that have met or exceeded the Meritorious Budget Award criteria.
To earn this award, the school district submitted its 2013–2014 budget for a rigorous review based on stringent criteria.
Developed by ASBO for school districts, the MBA criteria guide school business officials toward a quality school budget presentation by enhancing the school business officials’ skills in developing, analyzing, and presenting a school system budget.
This year's budget book is 228 pages and goes into an incredible amount of detail on every dollar spent by Metro Schools. It even includes actual per-pupil spending for every school in the district. Take a gander at the book over on our sister blog, On Public Education.
