Budget & Salary Compensation Transparency Reporting

Cassopolis Public Schools Finance Information

Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting

The Annual Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting legislation is an opportunity for Cassopolis Public Schools District to share, with the public, information on how resources are utilized.

The legislation represents an amendment to the State School Aid Act (Public Act 94 of 1979) and requires each Michigan school district and intermediate school district to post the following budgetary information on its website.

Board Approved Budgets

The Cassopolis Public Schools budget is adopted by a publicly elected local Board of Education no later than June 30 of each year.  This budget is posted on the website within 30 days of adoption.  Any subsequent budget amendments are also posted within 30 days.

Personnel Expenditures and Current Operating Expenditures

Because schools are a service industry, the largest share of every school’s expenditures is salaries and benefits.  Operational expenditures include, but are not limited to, instructional resources, fuel, maintenance, transportation, and technology.
