CFO/Treasurer
Welcome to Defiance City School 
 

Roles and Responsibilities of the School Treasurer:

The role of an effective treasurer encompasses a multitude of responsibilities, each essential to the fiscal health of the district.

Treasurers are:

  • Fiscal leaders and advisors who provide sound financial guidance that assists the district leadership team in the decision-making process;
  • Financial managers who clearly understand the economic resources and collaborate with district leadership in their management;
  • Managers of capital and financial assets who, through their fiscal leadership, are charged with the guardianship of these assets;

Ohio Standards for School Treasurers: 

These Ohio Standards for School Treasurers will serve as:

  • An overview of the expectations of leadership, management, communication, collaboration and professionalism for Ohio’s school treasurers;
  • An instrument for the effective professional development of school treasurers; and
  • Criteria for measurement of standard compliance.
  • Communicators and collaborators who disseminate and articulate the financial status of the district; and
  • Professionals who adhere to established ethical standards. School treasurers are entrusted with protecting the fiscal health of the district.

To perform these roles and responsibilities, they must execute their duties with the utmost conscientiousness, collaboration and ethical behavior; additionally, they must possess an extensive set of skills and knowledge. Treasurers exhibit the dispositions of effective leadership through collaboration. Treasurers lead by demonstrating and nurturing high levels of trust based on their competence, integrity, ethics and high expectations.

The five-year forecast serves as a tool to assess the financial health of a school district. City, local, exempted village and joint vocational school districts are required to submit five-year forecasts twice annually to the Ohio Department of Education (see Ohio Revised Code 5705.391 and Ohio Administrative Code 3301-92-04). Each five-year forecast contains two components: 1) historical and projected financial data and 2) notes to explain any significant changes or “assumptions” the District used to develop the reported financial projections. This 5-year forecast and notes were approved by the Board of Education on May 29, 2018.
From the Ohio Department of Education's website: Recognizing the importance of discussing school district finances, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has developed this guide to assist teachers, administrators, Boards of Education, community members or other individuals in developing a general understanding of a school district’s five-year forecast. Additionally, this document includes ODE’s perspective of the forecast’s purpose, O.R.C. and O.A.C. requirements for school district forecasts, definitions of key terms, an expectation of key lines, some general beliefs on what a “good” forecast should contain, and a line-by-line explanation of the forecast.
