School Support Organizations
Keep track of all of Williamson County School’s revenues and expenditures with Open Finance. Open Finance is a financial analysis tool that allows easy-to-understand information of the WCS’s financial data.
Currently, the portal contains information to generate revenue, expense and budget reports. The portal is not a “live database.” All actual financial data from fiscal years 2016 – 2017 through current period is provided on the website. WCS plans to continue updating and building the site to include additional school-related data.
Visit the WCS Open Finance portal to access and view several key reports. You will also be able to see the county’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report audits and the most current school activity funds audit.
The Accounts Payable/Purchasing Department is responsible for gathering and pre-auditing all information relating to the payment for goods and services. The WCS School Board operates under policies requiring the use of appropriate accounts. Purchase orders, receiving reports and vendors’ invoices for all departments and individual schools flow through the department to be processed for payment. The department issues more than 7,000 purchase orders a year.
