5.9.24 Budget Committee Meeting

6.20.24 budget hearing

The NSSD Budget Committee consists of the Board of Directors and an equal number of citizens that review the District’s proposed budget. This work is done during one or more public meetings. The public is encouraged to attend because one of the most important purposes of the committee is to take comments and questions from interested citizens. The committee can make changes to the proposed budget in order to meet the goals and objectives established by the school board. When it is satisfied, the committee approves the budget.

Each of the members has the same authority, whether school board member or appointed citizen. Each member is appointed for staggered 3-year terms. The committee cannot receive reimbursement for expenses incurred while serving.

Phase 1 - The Business Director puts together a proposed budget in a format designed by the Department of Revenue and to meet the goals and objectives set by the school board.

Phase 2 - The NSSD Budget Committee reviews the proposed budget, listens to comments from citizens, and then approves the budget. (typically occurs at the end of May)

Phase 3 - The approved budget is presented to the NSSD Board at a special meeting called a Budget Hearing. This typically occurs as a separate meeting prior to the normal June board meeting.  Assuming they accept the Budget Committee's approval of the proposed budget, they formally adopt it with a board motion. This process also certifies property taxes to the county tax assessor. 

Phase 4 - This occurs during the fiscal year. This phase often includes changes to the adopted budget. Changes must be approved by the school board, and possibly a supplemental budget process. Changes to the adopted budget must be made before additional money is spent or funds are appropriated for a different purpose than described in the adopted budget.
