Finance / Finance Department


The finance division is responsible for the overall tax management of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. Our mission is to support Cleveland schools through the strategic management and use of federal, state and local dollars. This responsibility requires the coordination of the District’s $ 1.5 billion budget. To support our schools and students, the Finance Division is organized into the following departments: Accounts Payable and Technical Support, Financial Reporting and Cash Management, Payroll, Internal Audit, Student Budgets and Financial Activities, and Grant Reports and funded programs.

These zones provide the financial services schools, employees and suppliers need, monitor and analyze budget activity, and provide district financial leadership in accordance with state and federal law, government regulations, board policies and good financial practices.

The finance team is proud to have received the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association, the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials and the Certificate of Auditor Excellence of state. These awards demonstrate our commitment to the highest standards in financial reporting.

The Finance Division is committed to providing the highest level of fiscal integrity in management and reporting to our students, parents, partners and the community.
