Adams 14 Wins International Award for Budget Excellence

COMMERCE CITY (March 1, 2010): The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has awarded the Meritorious Budget Award to Adams 14. This award was given for excellence in the preparation and issuance of a 2009-10 school district annual budget.

ASBO’s Meritorious Budget Awards Program helps school districts build a solid foundation in the skills of developing, analyzing and presenting a budget. The award is only presented to districts that have met or exceeded the criteria for budget excellence. No other organization or award program is specifically designed to enhance school budgeting and honor a school district for a job well done.

“The Adams 14 Finance Department has instituted several positive changes to the budget process in recent years, and this award is confirmation that we are moving in the right direction,” said Superintendent Sue Chandler. For Chief Operating Officer Sandy Mutchler, winning this award is fulfillment of one of her professional goals. “We believe the format of our budget books is very reader-friendly and provides good information for our public,” said Mutchler. “The format allows readers to tie our revenues and expenditures to our overall educational vision.” Mutchler says that should be the purpose of any quality budget book.

Adams 14 congratulates Chief Operating Officer Sandy Mutchler and the entire Finance Department for this outstanding achievement.
