Jennifer ClantonDirector of Business and Finance
Welcome to the Office of Business and Finance!
The mission of the Office of Business and Finance is to ensure that the fiscal resources of the district are administered effectively to support teaching and learning.
We are responsible for the planning, management and stewardship of the school district’s financial resources. We operate on the principles of sound budgeting practices, cost effective operations, prudent fiscal management and most of all, integrity, as we handle the daily business affairs of the district. We acknowledge that we are indeed accountable to the local taxpayers; therefore, we endeavor to practice good stewardship over what we have been entrusted.
The district operates on a fiscal cycle that begins July 1 and ends June 30 of the following year.
Our activities are reviewed by external independent auditing services on an annual basis to ensure the accuracy of financial reporting and to be certain that all required rules, regulations, laws and Board policies are being adhered to.
For more information on the financial affairs of the district, please join us as we present reports monthly at our regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Directors. You may also click the links to the left to access additional information.
