Park County School District #1
Driven by Excellence

Business Office

The Business Office is responsible for the fiscal management and accounting of all business transactions of the school district. We take our stewardship to manage public funds and the district’s resources very seriously and conduct all business with integrity and transparency.

Practicing Sound Accounting and Financial Transparency

To ensure the public’s confidence in our ability to manage the district’s fiscal resources, we adhere to sound accounting practices.

  • Annual, independent audits of financial records and procedures verify and provide complete assurance that your tax dollars and district resources are properly safeguarded. More importantly, for the purposes of successful management and policy making, accounting and financial reports provide district officials with information they need to evaluate programs, schools, and district performance.
  • We provide competent, friendly customer service not only to our staff but to the community, board members and vendors. As one of the largest employers in the county, we keep our employees well informed and administer board policy as it applies to the responsibilities of the business office in a fair and uniform manner.

Accounts Payable

In order for the district to make payments in a timely fashion and provide the trustees their packets prior to the board meetings, we require submission of all documentation to the business office by Wednesday at noon, the week prior to the board meeting.

We require the following documentation prior to issuing payment:

  1. Signed and approved school voucher with itemized invoice attached

  3. Proof of delivery/acceptance of goods signed by an authorized school district employee
