Lee’s Summit R-7 School District earns Meritorious Budget Award from national organization

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District was selected to receive the Meritorious Budget Award for excellence in budget presentation by the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International. The award recognizes the district’s budget for the 2017-18 school year.

According to the national organization, the Meritorious Budget Award promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation while acknowledging school business officials’ skills in developing, analyzing and presenting a school system budget. After a rigorous review by a team of professional school business officials, the award is conferred only on school districts that have met or exceeded the program’s stringent criteria. The award is sponsored by Voya Financial.  

“School business officials are responsible for ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent wisely and that the district budget reflects student priorities and needs,” said John Musso, executive director for ASBO International. “The Meritorious Budget Award program helps applicants create an accessible, accurate budget that builds trust with their community.”

The Lee’s Summit R-7 budget is available on the school district’s website at www.lsr7.org.
