For the fifth year in a row, the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International has awarded the North Penn School District (NPSD) its Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for excellence in budget presentation during the 2019–2020 budget year.

NPSD is one of only 10 school districts in Pennsylvania to receive the MBA in the 2019-2020 budget year. This is the fifth consecutive year that NPSD has earned this award, a true reflection of the district’s commitment to fiscal integrity.

NPSD would like to acknowledge Kristin Johnson, 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.

ASBO International’s MBA promotes and recognizes best budget presentation practices in school districts. Participants submit their applications and budget documents to a panel of school financial professionals who review the materials for compliance with the MBA Criteria Checklist and other requirements and provide expert feedback that districts can use to improve their budget documents.

Districts that successfully demonstrate they have met the necessary program requirements may earn either the MBA or Pathway to the MBA, an introductory program that allows districts to ease into full MBA compliance.

“Districts that apply to the MBA program recognize the importance of presenting a quality, easy-to-understand budget internally and to the community,” ASBO International Executive Director David J. Lewis explains. “Participating in the MBA program provides districts with important tools and resources they need to communicate the district’s goals and objectives clearly and illustrates their commitment to adhering to nationally recognized budget presentation standards.”
