For the 19th consecutive year, Rockwood School District has earned the prestigious Meritorious Budget Award from the Association of School Business Officials International for excellence in the preparation of its 2018-2019 annual budget.
The Meritorious Budget Award (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 given only to school districts that have met or exceeded the program's criteria.
"Maintaining fiscal integrity, stability and transparency continues to be our focus," said Rockwood Chief Financial Officer Paul Northington. "Receiving this award for 19 consecutive years is a proud accomplishment."
