The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) is proud to recognize McAllen Independent School District for excellence in budget presentation with the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the 2020–21 budget year. 

This is the sixth straight year McAllen ISD has been recognized for its comprehensive budget presentation. The award has come from the ASBO the past four years while the district had previously received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association for the two prior years.

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

Participants submit their applications and budget documents to a panel of school financial professionals who review the materials for compliance with the MBA Criteria Checklist and other requirements and provide expert feedback that districts can use to improve their budget documents. Districts that successfully demonstrate they have met the necessary program requirements may earn either the MBA or Pathway to the MBA, an introductory program that allows districts to ease into full MBA compliance.

“Districts that apply to the MBA or Pathway to the MBA programs recognize the importance of presenting a high-quality, easy-to-understand budget internally and to the community,” ASBO International Executive Director David J. Lewis said. “By participating in the programs, not only do districts have access to the tools and resources they need to communicate the district’s goals and objectives clearly, they demonstrate their commitment to upholding nationally recognized budget presentation standards.”

The MBA and Pathway to the MBA are sponsored by ASBO International Strategic Partner Voya Financial®. Learn more about the program at www.asbointl.org/MBA.
