The district’s annual budget allocates funding from Washington state, the federal government, local levies and bonds, grants, student fundraising, and donations into four accounting funds:
- General Fund – education of students
- Associated Student Body Fund – student activities
- Transportation Vehicle Fund – school buses
- Capital Projects Fund – land acquisition, construction or modernization of facilities.
State and federal regulations apply to revenues and expenditures for each of these funds.
