The mission of the Business Services Department is to accurately record, manage and report the financial position and business activities of Barrow County Schools and its departments for various entities – including the Georgia Department of Education, the Barrow County Board of Education, government agencies, auditors, creditors, and the citizens of Barrow County and others who may have a vested interest in the financial activity and health of the system. Within the scope of this mission is the responsibility to coordinate and direct all financial transactions recorded in the accounting systems of Barrow County Schools. This responsibility requires that we be service oriented relative to the financial needs of all schools and departments while still assuring that transactions adhere to system policies and procedures, generally accepted accounting principles, and rules established by the authoritative governing bodies.
The Georgia Department of Education has published its new financial data reporting tool as required by HB 139, which requires aggregation and publication of a variety of financial information for all school districts, such as revenue and expenditure data, capital construction costs, recent audits, and similar reports. View the reporting system.
