Assistant Superintendent

Behnke

I am excited to see what the 2020-21 school year has to offer our students and how we can accomplish the latest set of challenges ahead. In the short time I have been with the District I have been impressed by our team and what they are able to accomplish. They have been flexible with all the challenges facing us and how they can improve the District to create a safe well-equipped learning environment for our students. While we all face these difficult times brought on by the Coronavirus, the District is faced with challenges of risk, resources, and logistic.

The Business Services department is designed to maximize our economic and physical resources, keep students and staff safe, provide nutritious meals, maintain access for students, and keep advancing our infrastructure. Business services encompasses the District’s operational services including Fiscal Services (payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, purchasing, budget), Nutrition, Facilities, Risk Management, Maintenance, Operations, Transportation, and Technology. Through these areas of focus we support our certificated colleagues while they educate students.

Currently we are working on updating the District. Risk Management is making sure campuses are ready for students to return to a safe cohesive environment. The Technology department is updating our tech infrastructure for our teachers to have the best tools to deliver distance learning. Nutrition Services is working on what meals will be available and how they will be disbursed to students. Maintenance is updating out school sites to make sure everything is well taken care of and ready to use. Fiscal services are making sure items are ordered, staff are paid, budgets are available, vendors are paid, and revenue has been received.

We are dedicated to supporting our staff, our students, and our community to provide an enriching and lasting education. We work hard to organize the district resources in order to respond to the needs of each classroom. As the challenges of this year unfold Business Services will be working to ensure the needs of our district are met.


Thanks,
