The Wimberley Independent School District (WISD) Business Support Service Department is responsible for the management of district funds and fiscal operations. WISD's annual budget is used for salaries, instructional supplies, facilities maintenance and various other expenditures.
Business Support Services functions include: Accounting, Accounts Payable & Receivable, Budget, Cash Management, Fixed Assets, Investments, Payroll, Purchasing, Risk Management and Workers' Compensation. Transportation, Child Nutrition, Custodial, and Maintenance & Operations also fall under this division.
Although Wimberley ISD’s fiscal year does not begin until Sept. 1, planning for each year’s budget starts early in the calendar year. After applying the state’s current public education funding formulas, the Business Office develops a budget and determines how the available funding will be used to support the district’s mission.
The Board of Trustees approves a budget and tax rate each year.
