SU Finance & Operations coordinates key services such as buildings & grounds, business services, food services, human resources, IT services, and transportation. Many of our SU’s essential services, not directly involving direct instruction and student support services, fall under the oversight of SU Operations.

The WSESU Finance & Operations Team:

  • Serves and supports 300+ dedicated employees of our 3 member school districts and SU;

  • Maintains and improves nearly 725,000 square feet of building space and 30 acres of property;

  • Manages and optimizes over 3,000 network devices and connectivity for almost 1,500 users daily;

  • Plans and serves nearly 200,000 student meals annually;

  • Stewards and safeguards more than $25 million dollars of budget capacity;

  • Safely transports students over 100,000 miles annually.

Increasing the impact, efficiency, and effectiveness of our operations is something we are passionate about.

Our mission is to leverage powerful resources of people, property, projects, and plans to deliver on the promise of supporting better educational outcomes, more opportunities for all of our students in all of our schools.
