The Chief Financial Officer provides financial planning and reporting information to the Superintendent and the Board of Education to support their roles in meeting their fiduciary responsibilities.  The CFO develops long-term financial plans that maximize revenue options and uses performance and cost efficiency measures, while supporting high student achievement. The CFO maintains oversight for all of the Finance Department which includes payroll, purchasing, warehouse, risk management, accounts payable, accounts receivable, cash management, accounting and budget.

The Finance Department produces a district financial statement, monthly, which is presented at the Work Session. At year’s end, the District has an external audit where an outside firm checks the District’s finances and how they have been handled throughout the year. Information from this report is consolidated and put into an annual financial statement. The information contained in that report is then filed with the State and presented to various stakeholders in the District.

A separate audit is done for all extracurricular activities in the District and a separate financial statement is issued for these funds.
