Ventura Unified School District's Budget and Finance Department works to support and enhance educational opportunities for all students. 

This is achieved by:

  • Managing and allocating resources, through the district's budgeting process, to implement district goals
  • Ensuring accountability and compliance with district policies, State and Federal laws, and the requirements of other agencies, groups and individuals providing financial resources to support the district's mission
  • Working in collaboration with all district departments, students, parents and community groups to provide useful information and reports to assist in setting priorities, decision making and strategic planning to optimize our students' educational experience

Our department pays the bills, collects revenues, processes payroll, monitors and reports student attendance, and manages school site and district department budgets.  The district works with external auditors to certify that our fiscal reports accurately represent our financial position.
