We are leading through fiscal responsibility in the Business Division.
It is our duty to manage Mobile County Public Schools’ $640 million annual budget responsibly and transparently. We do so through a system of checks and balances that includes public hearings, public reporting of financial statements and public votes of the Mobile County Board of School Commissioners.
Mobile County Public Schools spends an average of $9,333 per student and spends its federal, state and local tax revenue wisely. As a result, we receive excellent annual audits by the Alabama Examiners of Public Accounts.
Our division also operates the Child Nutrition Program, which has been recognized statewide and nationally for serving nutritious meals. Through a federal grant, all students have access to free breakfasts and lunches. Mobile County was the first school system in Alabama to have all of its campuses meet the Healthier U.S. Schools Challenge by serving more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
