Fund Balance (Updated 3-19-13) Information click here


A fund balance allows the school district to manage risk and to respond to unforeseen circumstances without having to borrow money. We assess risk to determine how large a fund balance MPS needs. If the fund balance is too large, we might be unduly restricting services for today's students. If the fund balance is too small, we will not be able to manage risks.
