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. Please visit the links in the right-hand menu for additional information about the district’s finances.
