Welcome to the Department of Finance and Accounting.  This department provides the financial management services for the Superintendent and the Lowndes County Board of Education.  Financial management includes policy planning and coordination for the most effective and efficient allocation of all funding sources available to the Board.

The Lowndes County Board of Education operates all financial transactions within the parameters of the Annual Budget adopted by the Board for the Fiscal year October 1 through September 30.  The budget process is designed to encourage the concept of site based management with input from the system's personnel, students, parents and community leaders.  Decisions are made based on the use of available resources to best serve the needs of the students within the system. The budget includes all funds received and generated from state, federal, local and other sources.  All budget and financial reports are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and comply with reporting requirements outlined in the Financial Planning, Budgeting and Reporting System for Alabama Public Schools.
