Message from the Director of Finance

Marianne Carlson, Director of Finance

Marianne CarlsonThe goal of the Business and Finance Department is to ensure taxpayer dollars are used to serve students in the most effective and efficient way possible. From a budget perspective, this means we work to minimize the impact of any reductions to education and academics. To do this, we manage the costs of operating the "district" and eliminate or lessen the impact of financial challenges on or in the classroom.

This includes:

  • Ensuring that funds are used to provide programs necessary for student learning

  • Ensuring that budget and purchasing decisions are based on district priorities with the top priorities being the education of students, and safety and welfare of students and staff

  • Ensuring that purchasing decisions consider Return on Investment (ROI) to maximize the benefit of the district's investments

  • Closely examining our expenditures on items that meet our goals and eliminating waste
