Our Business Services Department handles everything from payables to purchasing. We take our responsibility to manage taxpayer funds very seriously and conduct all business with integrity and transparency. We are happy to answer your questions or provide you with the information you need. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of our department. 

Our Mission

Business Services supports the Saugus Union School District's mission and vision so that the highest quality educational experience can be provided to our students. This support is exhibited by maximizing our fiscal resources, providing quality educational facilities, and maintaining schools to the highest standards possible. Business Services is made up of a team of people whose broad span of responsibilities promote academic excellence, fiscal responsibility, and public accountability.

Fiscal Services

We provide accurate financial information and services to the community, the SUSD Board of Education, and district administrators, in order to support the district focus on excellence in elementary education.

We develop and produce the district budget and other financial documents along with associated state and federal reports. With an objective of safeguarding the district's resources, we perform other professional accounting functions including accounts payable, accounts receivable, attendance, payroll, and benefit functions.

Purchasing

We are, above all, a service department focused on the strategic acquisition of goods and services to meet the educational needs of all SUSD students. We are accountable, ethical, and fiscally responsible for protecting public funds, and it is our goal to achieve the best value for our money.

It is our responsibility to:

  • ensure organization procurement accountability;
  • strategically source products and services;
  • facilitate competitive bid and quote processes;
  • negotiate optimal price and value; and
  • manage vendor relationships.

Flyer Distribution Information

We cooperate in publicizing community services, special events, and other activities of interest to our students and their parents. In an effort to distribute materials without negatively impacting our educational program and to minimize the impact on our schools, we enforce strict guidelines and requirements.

Please view our flyer distribution guidelines and requirements, and submit all flyers electronically (in PDF format) to sguinn@saugususd.org by using the “Request for Flyer Distribution Approval” form for pre approval. We review flyers on Thursday afternoons for distribution the following Tuesday.
