Welcome to the Budget Department

  • The Budget Department is responsible for developing and overseeing the district's annual budget. The department's goal is to maximize financial resources and to equitably distribute these resources to schools and departments to ensure that the public's investment in our students, staff and schools is properly used.

    School districts are required by state law to adopt an annual budget for the General Fund, Debt Service Fund and the Food Services Fund.  The proposed budget is presented to the FWISD Board of Education for consideration and final adoption.  The annual budget must be adopted before any funds can be spent.  Throughout the fiscal year, budget amendments are presented to the board as necessary to continue the operations of the school district.
