The Financial Report
The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) awarded the Meritorious Budget Award for excellence in the preparation and issuance of a 2019-20 school system annual budget to Provo City School District.
The Meritorious Budget Awards Program was designed by ASBO International and school business management professionals to enable school business administration to achieve excellence in budget presentation. The Meritorious Budget Award, sponsored by ING, is only conferred on school systems that have met or exceeded the Meritorious Budget Award Program Criteria. We believe our current FY 2020-21 budget also complies with ASBO’s Meritorious Budget Award standards, and we will be submitting the budget in an effort to win the award again.
If you would like to view our financial reports, they are available on our website.
New Business Manager
We are pleased to welcome Derek Anderson as the new Business Manager for Provo City School District. Derek was born in Provo and grew up in southern Utah. After finishing his tour in the Army, he graduated from Southern Utah University with a BA and MA in accounting. From there he worked for Deloitte as a CPA and audited public companies before he moved into the world of public schools. Before he came to PCSD, he worked in the Jordan School District as the Director of Budgets and Accounting.
Derek is the father of four boys and a little girl. He loves to enjoy the outdoors, whether it’s through fly fishing, upland game hunting, or backcountry hunting. He has a passion for learning and remembers what a large impact a passionate teacher can have on a student.
