Business Office Mission

The role of the Business Office is to provide financial support services to our educational program and to safeguard District assets.  We are responsible for all the financial data and reporting for the District.  We develop and monitor the budgeted expenses and revenues, administer payroll and benefits for both employees and retirees, and facilitate the bidding and purchasing of all the goods and services utilized throughout the District.

Our mission is to provide the most efficient and economical financial support service to our students, staff and community. Business Office departments include Payroll, Purchasing, Treasurer, Accounts Payable, Tax Collection, and Reception.  Additional departments that report to the Assistant Superintendent for Finance are Transportation, Buildings and Grounds, and Food Services.
