Districts can receive advice and assistance with the many aspects of financial planning relating to all areas of school district operations, including:

  • Levy and bond amounts and limits

  • Capital projects

The department also assists districts with budget development and the completion of several required reports, including

  • Annual financial reports
  • Personnel and salary reports
  • Payroll reports
  • Enrollment reports

The department is also available to cover unexpected staff losses until the staff is replaced on a fee for services basis.
