Management Assistance Teams

Management Assistance Teams provide specialized studies for K-12 school districts within San Diego County. The study process is entirely voluntary and is presently utilized by districts to provide an independent review of a specific area of district operations.

Typical areas that may be reviewed include business office operations, transportation, child nutrition, purchasing and warehousing.

Study teams are coordinated by the executive director of the District Financial Services Unit and are comprised of school district professionals who are actively involved or working in other K-12 school districts. Their professional experiences and knowledge of the specific areas being reviewed provide a strong nucleus for the team. Each year four to five studies are performed, and presently there is no charge for this service.

Districts interested in further information about this service should contact Brent Watson by email at or phone at 858-295-6602.
