COLORADO SPRINGS – The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) is proud to recognize Harrison School District Two for excellence in budget presentation with the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the 2019–2020 budget year. 

ASBO International’s MBA and Pathway to the MBA promote and recognize best budget presentation practices in school districts.

The Review Team is pleased to present the Meritorious Budget Award to Harrison School District Two. The district’s budget document contains excellent spreadsheets, charts and graphs to help the reader fully grasp the data presented. The document provides excellent information to allow the layperson to understand the District’s budgeting process. The budget includes detailed information about various funds, revenue sources, and expenditure categories. This award recognizes the District’s hard work and commitment to fiscal transparency.
