Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Report
  • Section I - Board Approved Budget
    The Hudson Area School District expects to serve over 919children in kindergarten through the 12th grade for the 2012 - 2013
    School Year.  In addition we offer preschool, childcare, and community education services.  Our budget will be adopted by a
    publicly elected local board of education no later than June 30, 2012.  This budget is then posted on the district website within
    30 days of adoption.  Any subsequent budget amendments are also posted within 30 days.  Like other schools in the State of
    Michigan, our budget is based on our best guess of what amount of per pupil funding the state will provide.
  • Section II - Current Operating Expenditures

    Like any organization, the Hudson Area Schools District has a variety of expenditures including utilities, fuel for buses, technology,
    facility maintenance, insurance, personnel, and office supplies.  Schools also pay for classroom supplies, specialized services for
    students with special needs, and many other instruction-related items.  Public schools, like many other government entities, have
    elected boards that control the expenditure (and receipt) of school funds.  The school board members carry out educational
    obligations at the local level, and they have the ultimate responsibility for school operations.  For consistency across fiscal years
    and between districts, public school districts are required to follow the common chart of accounts defined in Michigan's Public
    School Accounting Manual.

  • Section III - Personnel Expenditures

    Because schools are a service industry, the largest share of every school's expenditures is salaries and benefits.  Retirement costs are state mandated.  Schools have increased co-pays for health insurance and reduced benefit programs for health insurance for staff.  Insurance costs include health, dental, vision, and life.

  • Section IV - Audited Financial Statements

    Each year the Hudson Area Schools District is required to hire an independent auditor to complete a comprehensive audit which evaluates and reports on the financial condition of the district. The audit includes a thorough analysis of all business operations as well as a compliance review for the requirements of the many programs we operate.  

  • Section V - Employee Compensation Information

    All employees of the Hudson Area Schools District are categorized by classification of position held. All classifications are established according to demands of the position, level of responsibility, job functions performed, credentials and skills required, etc. Each classification falls into at least one established salary schedule, which takes into account such factors as seniority in position or in similar positions, comparison to similar jobs elsewhere in the community, cost of living factors, etc.  The Hudson Area Schools District Board of Education determines matters related to school employees including pay and benefits.

  • Section VI - District Paid Association Dues

    Dues and fees paid with district funds are limited to professional associations and student associations.  Memberships in professional associations provide added opportunities, resources, continuing education, and professional development.  They also make it possible for our district to conduct business in more efficient ways.  Participation in student associations results in scholarship opportunities for our students.

    Employees pay employment association (labor union) dues through payoll deductions. 
    These dues are NOT paid with district funds.

  • Section VII - District Paid Lobbying Costs

    No school district funds were spent on lobbying services in 2011-12.
    or
    Because public education is funded and regulated by the state and federal government, it is necessary for schools to use some resources to fund activities that involve government communications. The guiding principle for all activities of this nature is to advocate for the children we serve.  In 2011-12 Hudson Area Schools District spent $ 0.00 on government communications.
