The Oblong Community Unit School District's budget is developed annually and is designed to meet the requirements of local, state and federal government regulations. The budget, which is adopted by the board of education, outlines the plan for accomplishing the district's fiscal goals each year. The school board develops the tentative budget which contains potential revenues and expenditures as well as a statement of estimated cash expected to be on hand at the beginning and end of the fiscal year. The tentative budget is placed on display 30 days prior to a public budget hearing. During the hearing, details of the tentative budget are explained and the public may ask questions or provide input. The budget is then voted on and adopted (or rejected) by the board of education at a public board meeting held after the budget hearing.
