The purpose of a school budget is straightforward — to create and implement a financial plan, which will support appropriate funding for all programs benefiting the students. The Texas Education Agency requires that the preparation, the Board review and the approval process for a charter’s annual budget must be conducted and completed prior to the commencement of each new fiscal year. A budget cycle is the life of a budget from creation or preparation to evaluations and amendments. Even though the budget process may look different from charter to charter, there is still a process, and each goes through cycles or phases.
