The Accounts Payable team pays all Purchase Orders, Special Check Requests, Travel Advances, Travel Reimbursements and Petty Cash Reimbursements of the Savannah-Chatham County Board of Public Education. Accounts Payable is also responsible for providing the necessary training and assistance to departments/sites and vendors to ensure the payment process is understood. 

Annually, the Accounts Payable Department produces 26,000 checks, resulting from processing 38,000 invoices and 15,000 other payment documents, and closed 21,500 purchase orders. The Accounts Payable Department (working with Administrative Technology) has implemented a payment process using electronic scanning and retention of invoices, which has allowed for more effective monitoring of the payment process. 

The Payroll team processes checks for the Savannah-Chatham County School District. The Payroll Department works along with other departments to ensure all employees receive accurate and timely compensation. More than 95,000 payroll checks are produced each year, including 1,200 manual checks. Approximately 7,000 W-2’s are prepared each year.​
