District receives budget award for 4th year

Meritorious Budget Award at Board Meeting 111518

For the fourth consecutive year, the Raymore-Peculiar School District has received the Meritorious Budget Award from the Association of School Business Officials International. The award recognizes the District for its 2018-2019 submission. 

The MBA promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation. After a rigorous review by professional auditors, the award is conferred only on school districts that meet or exceed the program's stringent criteria. During the 2017-2018 school year, only eight Missouri school districts, including Ray-Pec, received the award.

Preparing the budget in a manner to qualify for the Meritorious Budget Award is a more comprehensive process than a normal budget. The finished product must present financial information, statistical data, and performance data in a clear, easy-to-read way that illustrates the District's short- and long-term strategies and provides transparency in the budgeting process. 

Superintendent Dr. Kari Monsees said the award "is evidence of the District's efforts to share important financial and operational information with patrons, as we continue to focus on developing success ready students."
