Business Services


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.

To better understand how school finance works, take a look at the Dollars & Sense guide we developed. If you have any questions, please reach out to our team.
