The District's operation and educational plan is reflected in its budgets. Each year, the Board of Education will cause to have prepared and then review and approve the following Fund budgets:

 A.General Fund

 B.Debt Retirement

 C.Food Service

 D.Athletic Fund

 E.Capital Projects

Each budget shall be designed to carry out District operations in a thorough and efficient manner, maintain District facilities properly, and honor continuing obligations of the Board.

A proposed budget requires the critical analysis of every member of the Board prior to approval; once adopted, the budget deserves the support of all members of the Board regardless of their position before its adoption.

In order to allow adequate time for the preparation and review of the proposed General Fund budget, the Board directs the Superintendent to present this budget to the Board by June 30th of each year along with all available information associated with the budget in compliance with Michigan Compiled Laws.

When presented to the Board for review and/or adoption, each budget shall include:

 A.the number and category of staff members for the current and the ensuing year;

 B.the proposed expenditure and revenue in each financial category for the ensuing year;

 C.anticipated expenditure and revenue in each financial category for the current year;

 D.the actual expenditure, the approved budget, and the revenue in each financial category for the previous year; estimate of the student enrollment by grades for the ensuing year;

 F.the amount of fund equity anticipated at the end of the current year; appropriations resolution.
