Procurement

Our mission is to effectively and efficiently support the schools in the District with their procurement needs and to secure goods and services from responsible merchants and vendors at a price that represents the best value and quality that will enable staff to fulfill the district’s educational goals.

The intent of the Procurement Department is to establish and provide the end user with clear and efficient procedures for obtaining products. We are here to serve you. Please call or email the Procurement Department for assistance in purchasing necessary goods, supplies, materials and equipment.
