Rochester Community Schools is one of only four districts across the state to be presented with the prestigious Association of School Business Officials International Meritorious Budget Award for the 2017–2018 budget year. The MBA promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation and is conferred only to school districts whose budgets have undergone a rigorous review by professional auditors and have met or exceeded the program’s stringent criteria. “Our ability to accomplish the goals set by our strategic plan requires fiscal stewardship. This budget forecast will ensure we can continue to provide our students with a world-class education, now and into the future,” said Superintendent Shaner.
