Administration & Finance

The Superintendent of Schools division of Administration, Finance and Accountability is the accounting link to Kern county’s 47+ school districts and local education agencies. We make sure that each district complies with a variety of complex budgetary, state and federal reporting requirements. Not only do we monitor each district’s budget, we also process their Payroll and Accounts Payable batches daily. We provide auditing services to ensure that sufficient funds are available for all payroll, and commercial warrant obligations.

The Administration and Finance division also audits and maintains state retirement accounts for all county public school employees and provides electronic access to centralized financial records. We collect funds and pay the bills for our Superintendent’s office, while also maintaining complex budgets and overseeing all internal business processes and procedures.
