Fiscal Year Approved Budget

Section 1-Annual Operating Budget and Subsequent Revisions

Berrien Regional Education Service Agency offers educational services to our area’s 15 public school districts as well as to the over 20 parochial and private schools and four public school academies of Berrien County (totaling over 25,000 students). Our budget is adopted by an elected local board of education no later than June 30 of each year. This budget is then posted on the District’s website within 15 days of adoption. Any subsequent budget amendments are also posted within 15 days. Like other public schools and ISD/RESAs in Michigan, our budget is based on our best estimate of what amount of per pupil funding the state will provide as well as federal revenue sources.
