On behalf of the Business Office, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. District 207-U has a legacy of educational excellence and has earned a reputation for producing high achieving students with one of the lowest tax rates in Will County. Although our students consistently perform well on state and national assessments, our district is also considered to be one of the top rated districts in Illinois due to our strong parental support, outstanding curriculum, and highly collaborative relationship with our teachers and community.
In the Business Office, we are responsible for overseeing the financial and business operations of the District. Oversight includes financial planning, developing the school district budget, advising the Board of Education and Superintendent on financial matters, purchasing, fiscal accounting, financial reporting, grants, insurance, and accounts payable. A major goal is to maximize the value of all revenues to provide a positive learning experience for students.
We will be updating the Business Office tab of the website throughout the year to provide information about various aspects of the school business cycle. If there are financial issues that you would like to discuss, I welcome you to call my office or set up an appointment to meet with me in person. I look forward to working with you.
