Superintendent of Schools

About the Department


The Stillwater County Superintendent of Schools provides administrative support, information, and organization for the schools and communities of Stillwater County.  

The office must meet the requirements of federal, state, and local codes and policies while providing quality service to the children, families, schools, and taxpayers of Stillwater County. 

The County Superintendent performs administrative, financial, legal, record-keeping, and transportation-supervisory services for all schools in the County.  The office assists school boards, educators, students, and parents, along with taxpayers in general to understand and implement federal, state, and local laws applicable to education.  The Superintendent is a liaison between the state and local governmental units.  In addition, home schools register with the office. 

The office oversees the budget preparation process for schools and meetings of The Office of Public Instructions deadlines for schools, as well as the Council of Commissioners, in order to include yearly mill values on the tax notices.  County transportation and retirement are disbursed yearly through this office. 

Official acts are kept on record (e.g. school census information, school district organization classification, district boundary adjustments).  Records for preservation meet state requirements and include attendance, enrollment, annual data collection, transportation contracts, trustee election data, final budgets, trustee annual reports, school audits, and home school notfications.
