Budget Information

According to Board policies, money and money management provide the foundational support for the whole school system.  Therefore, the Board encourages planning through budgets to explore all practical and legal revenue sources, to guide expenditures to best achieve the greatest educational returns, to require maximum efficiency in accounting and reporting procedures and to maintain a level of per pupil expenditures needed to provide high quality education.

Budgets are prepapred for and approved by the Board on an annual basis, consistent with the Pickens Board of Education's fiscal year which runs July 1 - June 30.
