Business Office

What do we do?

Berrien RESA's Business Office works with department directors to create an accurate budget, bids out jobs/services and uses various reporting mechanisms to report financial data to federal, state and local governments. Team members process accounts payable and receivable using Skyward, answer local district questions relative to the Skyward system. Berrien RESA contracts with local school districts to provide payroll, accounts payable and food services upon request. 

They also work with the Building & Grounds Department to maintain a safe, clean, functional environment for students, staff and the community. Additionally, the Business Office oversees the district's food service program to ensure compliance of federal and state guidelines.

 The Business Office is also responsible for supporting local districts' pupil accounting questions and administers the State School Aid Act's mandated Michigan Department of Education pupil membership audit.
