The budget reflects the allocation of revenues and expenditures to support the educational programs and services. Each school district in Texas is required by law to prepare annually a budget for the General Fund, the Debt Service Fund and the Food Service Program. The following budget documents are the original budgets adopted by the Board of Trustees. The Accounting Department performs budget reviews during the year in which budget requirements are re-evaluated and revisions are recommended to the Board. Therefore, the budget amendments are not included in the original budget documents.
