Financial Overview


    Richmond County School System operates on a fiscal year basis as prescribed by the State of Georgia.

    The fiscal year starts July 1 and ends on June 30. The State requires that every school system have a

    balanced budget, approved by the local Board of Education, in place before the start of the fiscal year.

    There are many factors that go into determining the budget for RCSS, to include: population

     changes (student and county wide), revenues, class size, state funded positions - vs - locally

    funded positions, and tax base which are considered when determining the millage rate.
