Budget & Finance

General Information

Welcome to the ConVal School District’s Budget and Finance page. Here you will find monthly expense reports, budget information, sample forms, and links to any other relevant information.


The ConVal School District’s financial operations are governed by several state statutes, including NH RSA 32 (The Municipal Budget Law) and NH RSA 40:13 (Senate Bill 2 – Official Ballot Referenda). The Municipal Budget Law determines how proposed budgets are to be developed, adopted, and expensed; Senate Bill 2 (SB2) determines how the community votes on the proposed budget for any given year.
