Business Services and Finance

  • The Business Office at Willmar Public Schools is responsible for all financial functions of the district, including budget preparation, purchasing procedures, risk management/insurance, elections, financial statement presentation and tax levy preparation.  The department also oversees food service, buildings and grounds, nursing, accounts payable and accounts receivable.

    Strategic financial management and effective budget controls are the foundation of a good school finance system. Our district's mission and goals can only be accomplished through the effective allocation of human, financial, and physical resources. School funding drives the opportunities available to our students, and our decisions are made in the best interests of all students. Community support of our schools is invaluable to providing safe, healthy, and positive learning environments and programs for every student. 

    Our finance team is committed to accountability, communication and transparency. Our public schools are among the most valuable assets in our community, and they are owned by the community. As responsible stewards of taxpayer resources, we welcome your questions.
