Business Office

The Lowell Area Schools Business Office performs many essential functions for the district.  These functions include payroll services, accounts/payable/receivable, and budgeting.  The Business Office also oversees human resource and personnel matters which includes processing new employees, conducting exit interviews, and monitoring credentials and files.  

We work hard to provide services to the staff, departments and vendors in order to provide a high level of communication, a flow of information and a quality product that ultimately allows the district to deliver teaching and learning to all students.

We need substitute teachers - are you interested?  External LinkEduStaff
