Budget planning and evaluation are continuous processes at Hays CISD. Annually, the administration develops an operating budget in conjunction with the Mission, Beliefs and Goals of the Board of Trustees that is presented for approval each June. The budget reflects the allocation of revenues and expenditures to support educational programs and services. Each school district in Texas is required by law to prepare annually a budget for the General Fund, the Food Service Program, and the Debt Service Fund. The following budget documents are the original budgets adopted by the Board of Trustees. The Business & Finance Division performs budget reviews during the year in which budget requirements are re-evaluated, and revisions are recommended to the Board. Therefore, the budget amendments are not included in the original budget documents.
