 Job Description
  Santa Clara County Office of Education
Situated between the San Francisco Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountain Range, Santa Clara County extends south to the city of Gilroy and north to Palo Alto. With nearly 1.6 million residents, it is one of the largest counties in California. Prime attractions of the area are its Mediterranean climate, easy access to mountain peaks and ocean beaches, nationally acclaimed universities, and many cultural, economic and educational resources.

Once agriculturally based, the county has emerged as the industrial and technological center known as Silicon Valley.

As the regional resource for educational services, the Santa Clara County Office of Education (COE) works in tandem with the county's 37 public school and community college districts to serve students. The Office's long-range plan outlines a new direction for the Office and will place the COE in the forefront of educational reform.

The County Office is seeking proven leaders to join the effort to define the role of the COE in public education, and develop the Office's ability to provide high-quality; high-value mandated and contracted services to schools. These leaders will guide the COE team to find better ways to meet the needs of students who are the workforce of tomorrow.

The COE, with a staff of 1900 employees and an annual budget of $290 million, provides services to more than 250,000 students and their families in the region's public schools.

District Business and Advisory Services provides a full range of business services to all school districts and related educational entities in the county. The department provides services in the areas of payroll, finance, attendance accounting, record retention, legislation, training, and the data processing systems associated with those areas.

The Position
Under the direction of the Manager-District Business Services, provide advisory services and fiscal oversight to school districts on financial matters according to AB1200; plan, coordinate, and oversee the preparation of a wide variety of financial reports including revenue projections and calculations, program and district budgets, and reporting systems for apportionments, attendance, and year-end closing statements; serve as business manager for direct service districts; supervise and evaluate the performance of assigned personnel.

Qualifications
Any combination equivalent to: bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with major course work in accounting, business administration or a related field and three years accounting experience in an educational organization including work with governmental budgetary and fiscal systems, models and procedures.
