The Business Services Department ensures the district’s overall financial integrity and stability through the development of annual and multi-year budgets. Additionally, the department is responsible for enrollment and staffing projections and allocations, nutrition services, purchasing and procurement, accounting, and payroll.

The Business Services Department oversees a budget of more than $168 million, the ninth-largest school district budget in Iowa.

We take our stewardship of taxpayer resources very seriously. The department routinely receives the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting and the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Award.

Understanding the complexities of school finance can be complicated. Waukee Community School District works hard to provide the community with an overview of the district’s funding sources and how they are allocated.

Public Budget Hearing

Waukee Community School District will hold a public hearing regarding the proposed property tax levy on April 8, 5:30 p.m., at the District Office. The FY24-25 budget hearing is a result of House File 718 and is open to the public.

Student enrollment in WCSD has seen an annual increase of 450-550 students for two decades. The property tax rate has remained stable over that time, with funds from increasing valuations collected to meet the needs of the incoming students through added staffing, transportation, energy costs, etc.
