Business Services


The Business Services Division provides a wide variety of services to support our employees, students, school sites, community and parents.  This division is responsible for all fiscal activities related to accounts payable, accounts receivable, budgeting, employee compensation, purchasing, the warehouse and risk management and employee benefits.  In addition, Business Services also oversees contracts, central printing and internal audit.  This department coordinates and interacts closely with district staff and provides information to the Board upon which policy decisions are made.  Short-term and long-term financial planning are also a responsibility of this department as well as providing contract information to the Board.

Health Benefits


All permanent full-time employees are eligible to enroll themselves and their dependents in the health benefit programs. New employees must sign up for health insurance within thirty days of their date of hire to participate. Most employees qualify if they are working 50% or more for the year but benefits vary by bargaining unit so employees should refer to the applicable collective bargaining union contract. Eligible dependents include lawful spouse or registered domestic partner, children under 26 years of age, stepchildren and legally adopted children.
