Consolidated Budgets - Schools
The consolidated budget is the discretionary portion of schools' general fund that supports non-FTE resources, including, but not limited to:
- limited term personnel
- printing costs
- extended responsibility
- copy machines and toner
- substitute costs not covered centrally
Schools are allocated a consolidated operating budget each fiscal year (July 1 - June 30), and that information is available for tracking in PeopleSoft Financials starting July 1st.
All consolidated budgets are in fund 101 and use a Function Code ending in 3 and the Area of Responsibility of 05000, as shown in the following list:
Elementary & K-8 Schools
101 - 11113 - (Object) - (Loc) - 05000 - (Dept ID)
101 - 11213 - (Object) - (Loc) - 05000 - (Dept ID)
101 - 11313 - (Object) - (Loc) - 05000 - (Dept ID)
Beginning in fiscal year 2019/20, schools will no longer be allowed to carry over the unspent balance of their Consolidated Budget from the previous school year. Schools which overspent their Consolidated Budget in the previous school year may have that amount deducted from their 2020/21 allocation in the fall. A final decision on the matter is pending.
Schools are expected to utilize their consolidated budget within the school year in which allocated, and will not be allowed to carry balances over to the following year.
