Welcome to the Finance Department
The mission of the Finance Department is to secure financial resources necessary to achieve the goals of Pike Road Schools and use the best management information practices to ensure fiscal responsibility.
control refers to the mechanism used for ensuring that resources are
properly spent as directed by the school board and for making a
comparison of the actual spending of funds to the planned expenditure of
funds. The budgeting process is also for the purpose of 'management
control' and is used for improving efficiency and effectiveness and for
comparing enrollment trends, ratios of productivity and performance of
students. The budgeting process is also a tool for planning and is a
process that is directly connected to the strategic plan of the school
and makes provision of "long-range forecasts of revenues, spending,
enrollment, and student performance".
