State law dictates that county offices provide a variety of business services to districts. Our school business advisory services staff approves district budgets, provides technical support, and monitors the districts for solvency. The division also processes and audits payroll and vendor payments for districts throughout the county.
Other support services include management and advisory services, legislative tracking, payroll and retirement tax reporting, and cooperative purchasing. Many of the services are mandated by the state.
Our information technology services department is the central hub in the county education community’s link with the Internet and email, servicing accounts for schools, teachers, students, and parents. It provides microcomputer support to our employees and to school districts, and operates the computer center, which hosts the financial management information system for school districts.
