Supervision for the following departments; Facilities, Food Service, Transportation, Capital Projects, and Print Shop are also the responsibility of the Executive Director and Finance & Operations.
The Marysville School District has adopted Budget Standards to use as values to frame and guide budget deliberations.
The Budget Standards will be used by the Board of Directors for the development of the annual budget and/or when other district budgetary decisions are considered.
Values to Frame and Guide Budget Deliberations
- Ensure a safe learning and working environment for students and staff
- Value the education of the ‘whole child’ and seek equity over equality
- Focus financial and human resources on programs and policies that directly support the district’s Mission and Vision, Strategic Directions, and the North Star Indicators Strive for the 75th percentile in pay for all groups using a defined list of comparator* districts
- Ensure that budget decisions are student-focused, practical, sustainable, and timely Honor the taxpayer’s investment in our infrastructure: facilities, grounds, technology and other assets
- Increase financial stability by reaching 8% fund balance per policy**
*Based on professional salary study (Hank Harris, Principal, Human Capital Enterprises / March 2015) **Undesignated/unreserved fund balance (Currently 4.2%)
