For the ninth year in a row, the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has awarded Oak Park and River Forest High School its Meritorious Budget Award for excellence in budget presentation. The award promotes and recognizes excellence in school budget presentation and enhances school business officials' skills in developing, analyzing, and presenting a school system budget.

This document represents a quality presentation of excellent data useful to the average reader. The District is to be congratulated for their continuous efforts to pursue the Meritorious Budget Award and to continuously improve their budget document."
