District Informational Summary:  The Center Consolidated School District 26JT (CCSD) fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30. Our District uses a modified accrual method of fund accounting and our chart of accounts aligns with that of the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). A fund is a grouping of related accounts that is used to maintain control over resources that have been segregated for specific activities or objectives, as designated by Colorado State Statute. CCSD monitors these funds to ensure and demonstrate compliance with financial related legal requirements. Our Board of Directors review financial statements each month during the Regular Board of Directors’ Meeting. These financial statements are unaudited and are not adopted by the board but are available to the public.

CCSD is required to submit a budget to the CDE prior to commencement of each fiscal year by May 31. We are allowed to make revisions to our budget during the fiscal year, but our final version must be submitted to the CDE by January 31. All budget revisions are adopted by the Board of Directors and are available to the public.
