Budget & Salary Compensation Transparency Reporting

Introduction

Section 18 (2) of the Public Act 94 of 1979, The State School Aid Act, has been amended, which requires each school district to post certain information on its website within 30 days after a board adopts its annual operating budget or any subsequent revision to that budget. The Annual Budget & Transparency Reporting is an opportunity to communicate to our community on how we utilize the resources that are provided to us.
