The St. Joseph County ISD (SJCISD) Annual Website Report is a welcome opportunity for the SJCISD to communicate with our community about how we utilize the resources provided to us. Our spending decisions support our mission to enable all students to become contributing members of society by equalizing and improving educational opportunities cooperatively with students, educators, parents, and the community.

The SJCISD supports school improvement efforts, provides cost effective business solutions, offers programs for students, helps parents, and works within our community to maximize resources for all families. Just like any other business organization we issue paychecks, our staff travel to trainings and conferences, we contract with outside vendors for services, and we incur legal costs. Unlike other business organizations, we are governed by a school board selected by our customers, our local districts. Everything we do is subject to public review at any time by any person or organization.

If you simply review the numbers in this report, you have only scratched the surface of the SJCISD. We invite you to dig deeper into our web site, visit our Special Education Programs, Career Tech Education (CTE) Consortium, Pathfinder Educational Center, and Instructional Leadership Service. If you have further questions, comments, or would like to arrange for a visit, please contact our Superintendents' Office at (269) 467-5400 or e-mail

Public Act 413 of 2004 amended the Revised School Code by adding section 620, which requires each intermediate school district to post information on its website by December 31st of each year beginning in 2006.
