Financial Managers’ Resource Center

Balancing Fiscal Responsibility and Educational Excellence

School district financial executives wear many hats. In addition to overseeing financial operations, watching revenues and expenses, and administering fiscal policies, they are often charged with analyzing contracts and projects for feasibility within budget parameters. They recommend how to use — and maximize — funds. Most critically, they balance the mandate to provide the resources for a top-quality education with the realities of a fiscally-constrained environment.

A Cenergistic energy program can help avoid the painful tradeoff between fiscal responsibility and educational excellence. Our energy conservation programs deliver significant energy savings, freeing up funds for staff salaries, infrastructure improvements and other important purposes. Everything we do is driven by data, and we are rigorous about measuring and reporting results. This means that financial managers can have full trust in the results of their Cenergistic program, and can report these results to the district superintendent and school board with complete confidence.
