Ancillary

The Mission of the Ancillary Department is to create and maintain a sound infrastructure of cost-effective and efficient services to provide safe and enjoyable environments for the education of our children.

Many people ask, “What is Ancillary Services?"  Webster defines Ancillary as subordinate, auxiliary. If you break down that definition, we are subordinate as we provide support to the educational process through our auxiliary departments.

The main goal of every department in ancillary services is to provide the service necessary to make each student’s day a success. We are the first department many of our students see in the morning, with our transportation department, and the last in the evening. It is important that our staff allow our students to start and finish on a positive note each day.

First-class transportation, a well-balanced nutritional meal, well designed and maintained facilities, and safe and environmentally sound campuses all contribute to the success of our students.

We encourage you to browse the various department links and find out what we are all about.  Should you have any questions regarding any of our Ancillary Departments, please feel free to contact us.
