The Board recognizes that money and money management compose the foundational support of the whole school program. To make that support as effective as possible, the Board intends:

  1. To encourage advance planning through the best possible budget procedures;

  2. To explore all practical sources of dollar income;

  3. To guide the expenditure of funds so as to extract the greatest educational returns;

  4. To expect top-quality accounting and reporting procedures; and

  5. To maintain a level of expenditure needed to provide high quality education without imposing an excessive tax burden on the community.
