For the fifth consecutive year, Mansfield ISD has received top recognition for having an accessible, accurate and easily understandable budget that clearly communicates the district’s goals and objectives.
The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) awarded the district the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the 2020-21 budget year.
The MBA recognizes school districts in the United States and Canada for excellence in school budget presentation, setting a high standard for transparent budget development. To be considered for the award, participants submit their budget applications to ASBO’s panel of financial professionals for review.
The applications are then assessed for compliance and other requirements.
School districts receive the MBA when the MBA Advisory Committee agrees the budget documentation has met or exceeded the MBA criteria. View more information about the award here.
ASBO is a nonprofit organization that, through its members and affiliates, represents approximately 30,000 school business professionals worldwide. The organization is committed to providing programs, services, and a global network that promote the highest standards in school business.
