Through our commitment to excellence and the highest degree of integrity and transparency, the Fiscal Services department strives to provide the Community, Joint Board of Trustees and partner districts accurate financial information and services.
We develop and produce the LPVROP budget and other financial documents along with various state and federal reports while rigorously complying with all applicable accounting principles. With the objective to safeguard the ROP’s resources, other accounting functions are performed which include accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll functions. We also direct the activities of the Technology Department were we believe that in order for students to be prepared for the demands of this new era, classrooms need to reflect the changes in philosophy, teaching methods, environment, and equipment which are necessary for students to be competitive and productive in the information and communications age. Other Support Services includes purchasing, receiving, mail delivery, asset management and delivery services. All activities are provided with an emphasis on professional service, assistance, clarification, and cooperation to benefit the entire ROP and its focus on student achievement.
