A school system’s budget serves as an operational plan, stated in financial terms, for carrying out the mission of the school district. In accordance with Georgia law and State Board of Education policy, a budget for the Henry County School system is prepared annually and submitted to the Henry County Board of Education for approval.
School system financials are governed by governmental accounting standards.
