Oakland Unified School District


The purpose of the Budget Department is to support the District's efforts to maximize the use of financial resources in pursuit of academic goals according to the Mission and Vision of the Superintendent’s Strategic Plan.

The department works to ensure long-term fiscal sustainability through financial oversight, shared management, and mandatory reporting on the District's budget to the State and County Offices as well as to our community of stakeholders.

The Budget team prides itself as a critical partner in promoting fiscal solvency at school and central office sites by providing assistance to maintain both an accurate account of Position Control and an annual balanced budget from budget development through the close of the school year.

The Budget team is charged with ensuring that all budgetary transactions are coded accurately in Escape, the District’s Financial System according to the California Standardized Account Code Structure authored by the California Department of Education through the use of a Chart of Accounts Structure.
