Best Practices in School Budgeting Eligibility Requirements

Public school districts are the primary audience for the award, so any public school district is eligible to participate in the Award Program.  Also eligible are charter management organizations that receive tax support, but aren’t part of a school district. Ineligible parties include sub-units of a school district (e.g., individual schools within a district), individual employees in a school district, private schools, and organizations that provide services to school districts, but don’t teach students.

GFOA membership is not a requirement to participate in the GFOA Award for Best Practices in School Budgeting
