The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has awarded the Auburn School District its Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for excellence in budget presentation.

The award is conferred only to school districts that have met or exceeded the Meritorious Budget Award criteria.

To earn this award, the school district submitted its 2013–2014 budget for a rigorous review based on stringent criteria.

"This is quite an achievement for the school district. Our business office staff is the first in the State of Washington to be recognized for both the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (2013) and MBA awards," said Mike Newman, deputy superintendent of the Auburn School District.

Developed by ASBO for school districts, the MBA criteria guide school business officials toward a quality school budget presentation by enhancing the school business officials' skills in developing, analyzing and presenting a school system budget.

The Association of School Business Officials International, founded in 1910, is a professional association of 5,000 members that provides programs and services to promote the highest standards of school business management practices, professional growth, and the effective use of educational resources.
