Business Operations

The Business Operations office oversees district-wide purchasing as well as the operation of the maintenance/custodial, transportation and food service departments.

In addition, the business office manages the Board of Education approved permanent improvement budget as well as facility planning, building renovations and new construction that provide an effective learning environment for our students and staff. The Director of Business Operations is an important part of the annual budgeting process, regularly monitors budget accounts, and manages cost control programs to maximize the district's financial resources.

Centerville City Schools is a member of the Southwestern Ohio Educational Purchasing Council. The EPC combines the buying power of more than 260 member school districts to generate savings by providing purchasing power for larger volumes of goods and services, such as classroom and office supplies, furniture, food, vehicles, utilities and insurance.
