The annual operating budget is the financial plan for the operation of the school system. It provides the framework for both expenditures and revenues for the year and translates the educational programs and priorities into financial terms.
Public school budgeting is regulated and controlled by the Wyoming Municipal Budget Act and other legislative acts.
The Superintendent will be the budget officer. In preparing budget recommendations for the Board, the Superintendent will seek suggestions from principals and other staff members. He will ensure that budget preparations follow guidelines set forth in state law and regulation. He will be responsible for budget administration after the budget is approved.
