Business Department Mission

The Mission of the Cleveland Independent School District Business Office is to provide support to all District students, staff, parents, and the Cleveland Community and to ensure that all business operations are supportive of the instructional goals and objectives of the District.

The Business Office’s primary goal is to protect the assets of the district and to ensure that all financial transactions are performed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.



The Business Department is responsible for managing the District’s budget and investments and the daily transactions of the District including banking, accounts payable, accounts receivable, purchasing, employee payroll, and financial reporting.  Cleveland Independent School District has an annual General Operating budget of approximately $110 million dollars. This money is used for teacher and employee salaries, instructional supplies and providing other services for students, school and facility maintenance, and various other expenditures. Additionally, bond funds are used for the construction and renovation of new schools and support facilities to ensure the educational needs of our students are met as well as providing a safe and secure environment for our students and employees.
