APS Receives Meritorious Budget Award
The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has awarded Arlington Public Schools its Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for excellence in budget presentation. The award is given only to school districts that have met or exceeded the Meritorious Budget Award criteria.

This is the seventh year that APS has received this recognition. To earn this award, the school district submitted its 2015-16 budget for a rigorous review based on stringent criteria. The MBA Criteria Checklist provides a foundation for developing a reader-friendly budget document that:
  • Presents clear budget guidelines;
  • Promotes communication between departments and the community;
  • Encourages short- and long-range budget goals; and
  • Supports effective use of educational resources.
Developed by ASBO for school districts, the MBA criteria guide school officials toward a quality school budget presentation by enhancing the skills of school officials in developing, analyzing, and presenting a school system budget.
