  • Budgeting Basics Workshops Scheduled in July

    Understanding the school district budget is one of the most important financial responsibilities of a school Superintendent, regardless of the size of the district. This virtual workshop is designed for early-career Superintendents (1st - 5th years), but is also helpful for any other Superintendent/administrator, who would benefit from a very basic workshop on the school district budget. Via Zoom, we will walk through the budget process from development of the tentative budget through adoption of the final budget. Participants will learn basic budget terminology and review timelines, requirements and forms that are used in the budget process. An in-depth look at fund accounting codes, individual budget line items, how to “find the numbers” and new requirements for FY 2021 budgets will also be covered. Click Here to learn when workshops are offered and to register.
