OLD INFO - DISD Budget from 2009-2010
This tool was first posted in February 2011, before DISD decided how to make the cuts being handed down from the State. The info is old, but you can play with it. It's a good tool for learning how the DISD budget is built - General Ledger Budget in Excel 2007 Spreadsheet (as .zip file).
GOES WITH IT, Listing of Function & Object Codes used in the DISD Budget Spreadsheet - see pages 106-120. School campus codes are in the "Org" column, and anything over 699 is non-campus administration.
Go to the DISD's Citizen's Budget Review Committee site for current budget info.
