The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) awarded the Mt. Lebanon School District with the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) during the 2017–2018 budget year. The MBA promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation and is conferred only to school districts whose budgets have undergone a rigorous review by financial professionals and have met or exceeded the program's stringent criteria. This is the 23rd year the District was selected for this award.
Developed by the Association of School Business Officials, the selection criteria for the Meritorious Budget Award were developed to help guide the clear and transparent development and distribution of relevant budgetary information for district and public consumption. The MBA 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.
Congratulations to Mt. Lebanon District Business Director Jan Klein and her staff for meeting the rigorous criteria for this award.
