Note from the Treasurer, Phillip Butto.
On behalf of the District’s Treasurer’s Office, welcome to Kenston Local Schools. In the Treasurer’s Office, we have three primary goals. First, we strive to be outstanding stewards of the public dollars entrusted to our district by the Kenston community. This includes ensuring financial accountability and transparency. Second, we serve and support our excellent staff as they carry out their duties in providing a top notch, high quality education. Finally, we provide the Kenston Board of Education timely, relevant, and accurate financial information and report the District’s financial status.
The Treasurer’s Office is responsible for the recognition of all district revenue and the disbursement of all district funds. This includes management of various activities including the budgetary process, the use of grants, finances related to student activities, payroll and benefits for staff and district compliance with Ohio law and Board policies.
In the performance of its duties, Kenston has received the Ohio Auditor of State Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the past 17 years. The District also annually receives the Certificate of Achievement for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
As Kenston Local School District’s Treasurer and CFO, I am responsible for the execution of the above duties. My highest priority is to provide excellent service and support to this Board, staff, and community, and it is a privilege and honor to do so. If you have any questions or concerns about the finances of the district, please feel free to call me at 440-543-9677.
