Every district must address the issues surrounding essential financial processes. Among these most fundamental to a school district are setting/adopting the tax rate, understanding your summary of finance (SOF), estimating total revenue, and others that are critical to healthy financial stability in your district.

As always, we wish to partner with you as you navigate the landscape of finance in your district.
