Using your school’s budget and CIP/SIP, develop a reference sheet that identifies a total of 7-10 school budget line items across three or more budget account categories and align them to the school’s vision, mission, and CIP/SIP. Remember the CIP/SIP should drive the budget.
Use the “Reference Sheet Template” to complete this assignment. USE the “Arizona Chart of Accounts,” as a resource for account codes and line items.
Part 2: Reflection
On the “Reference Sheet Template,” write a 250-500 word reflection that explains how the budget line items and categories align to the school’s vision, mission, and CIP/SIP. Reflect on why it is the principal’s responsibility to ensure that the budget aligns to the school’s mission, vision, and continuous improvement initiatives.
