The Treasurer's Office is responsible for all accounting, payroll, and financial reporting for the district including budgeting, payroll, and benefits, accounts payable and receivable, and EMIS (student information) data coordination. The Treasurer of an Ohio school district must hold appropriate certification to serve as the Chief Financial Officer and report directly to the Board of Education. The treasurer and superintendent are the only two district employees who report directly to the Board of Education. Many of the duties and responsibilities of the Treasurer are outlined in various sections of the Ohio Revised Code.



The treasurer is responsible for the preparation of the annual budget and the publication of an annual report. By law, the Board of Education must adopt a budget by September 30 of each year. Copies of the District's budget are available to the general public.
 


By January 1st of each year, the District must issue an audited annual financial report. These statements include financial statements, budget statements, and statistical information about the District and the services and programs it provides. Copies of the District's financial statements are also available to the public by request.



The Treasurer also serves as the Secretary to the Board of Education. In this role, all contracts, documents, and the official minutes of all Board meetings are kept as official records. Board minutes are public records and are available for review on this website. You may also request them from the Treasurer

 

The 5-year forecast is a document that is frequently updated by the Treasurer and submitted to the Ohio Department of Education. It is an informational piece the provides financial data on current financials as well as projected data for the next 5 years.
