Budgets Vs. Cash and the Qasimyar Lawsuit

School district budgets are classified in two “types” of funds, budget-controlled and cash-controlled funds.  Budget-controlled funds are set by a state set formula or legislative appropriations and the amount that a school district may spend is dependent on that formula.  The school district is legally permitted to budget or spend up to the budget limit. Budget-controlled funds include, Maintenance and Operations (M&O), District Additional Assistance (DAA or Unrestricted Capital), Bond, Overrides for both M&O and DAA, Classroom Site Fund and Adjacent Ways. The legislature establishes a formula for the budget which is the amount the district may spend for expenditures in those funds. To receive the cash to fund these accounts, the district must levy the local taxpayers.  The County Treasurer (district bank) requires the district to have available cash in the bank to process warrants (checks).
