    ASBO Recognizes Chesterfield County Public Schools for Excellence in FY 2020 Budget Presentation
    For the sixth consecutive year, the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has recognized Chesterfield County Public Schools for its work associated with the Fiscal Year 2020 budget document. The school division recently received the Meritorious Budget Award from the educational association that supports school business professionals.
    ASBO International’s Meritorious Budget Award promotes and recognizes best budget presentation practices in school districts. The award acknowledges a school division’s commitment to fiscal integrity, recognizes excellence in school budget presentation and enhances school business officials’ skills in developing, analyzing and presenting a complex school system budget. 
    “As we work to continue to create amazing learning experiences in remarkable learning environments, we understand the importance of transparency in how we are spending taxpayers’ investments in public education,” School Board Chair Rob Thompson said. “As we prepare to engage the community about funding necessary to support next school year, Chesterfield County Public Schools remains committed to providing an in-depth budget document that provides accessible budget information that reflects the academic and operational priorities our community has identified are necessary for a vibrant school division.” 
    “This prestigious award recognizes the level of effort and commitment our budget staff makes to effectively communicate what our operating budget funds and why,” Superintendent Dr. Merv Daugherty added. “We strive to ensure that our communication of the district’s goals is clear to all community members who are interested in learning how they are supporting our students, staff members and schools.”
    School divisions that successfully demonstrate they have met the necessary program requirements may earn this prestigious award. 
    “Districts that apply to the MBA or Pathway to the MBA programs recognize the importance of presenting a quality, easy-to-understand budget internally and to the community,” ASBO International Executive Director David J. Lewis said. “Participating in the MBA and Pathway programs provides districts with important tools and resources they need to communicate the district’s goals and objectives clearly and illustrates their commitment to adhering to nationally recognized budget presentation standards.”
