For the fourth year in a row, the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International has awarded the North Penn School District (NPSD) its Meritorious Budget Award for excellence in budget presentation during the 2018-2019 budget year.

The Meritorious Budget Awards (MBA) program promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation and enhances school business officials' skills in developing, analyzing and presenting a school system budget. After a rigorous review by professional auditors, the award is conferred only on school districts that have met or exceeded the program's stringent criteria.

Only 11 Pennsylvania entities, including 10 school districts and one intermediate unit, received the MBA in the 2017-2018 budget year. This is the fourth consecutive year that NPSD has earned this award, a true reflection of the district's commitment to fiscal integrity.

By applying for the award, school business officials learn best budget presentation practices and enhance their skills in developing, and presenting a school system budget. "School business officials are responsible for ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent wisely and that the district budget reflects student priorities and needs," said ASBO International Executive Director John Musso. "The MBA program helps applicants create an accessible, accurate budget that builds trust with their community. This award recognizes districts that have made it clear they want students at the center of their fiscal plan and vision."

The North Penn School District would like to acknowledge Donna Mugrauer, Interim Assistant Director of Business Administration, for her hard work with this project as well as the NPSD Business Office and additional NPSD staff members for their contributions to this outstanding program.
