The mission of the Treasurer’s Office is to provide fiscal accountability and professional integrity in financial accounting and reporting, to protect taxpayer funds and support District initiatives.
Monroe LSD, with the help of the community, continues to improve financially. We ended the fiscal year on June 30, 2023 with healthy reserves, and we continue to renew and add programs cognizant of our budget and resources. We wish to express gratitude to our Senator George Lang and Representative Thomas Hall for supporting the Fair School Funding Plan (FSFP), which is now in year three of implementation. The FSFP started Monroe LSD on the State Funding path where our funding is based on enrollment, and the economic wealth of our community. Prior to the FSFP, our school was "Capped" in funding, and we were paid by the State only half of what we were owed. Senator Lang and Representative Hall were in full support and worked to correct this funding issue, and we will forever be thankful for their support.
We are proud of the Auditor of State Award we received from Keith Faber, the Ohio State Auditor for our FY 2022 Audit. The award was given in recognition of the District for achieving financial integrity. We have strong and effective systems in place for financial accounting and reporting, and strong controls over assets and liabilities. Fiscal responsibilty will continue to be a key component over the coming years and support innovative and effective programs to prepare our students for the future.
We value the community’s trust and while the education of our students is paramount in all decisions we make, we perform a cost to benefit analysis before implementing new programs or expanding services. We are dictated in many ways by State and Federal mandates in public education. However we strive for efficiencies that allow us to meet those mandates, without compromising our financial integrity, or educational needs of our students.
In FY 2001, this community passed an 8.86 mill levy without the State’s help, to build their own school for their children. Above all we respect and stay focused on that commitment and passion for education in Monroe.
