The financial demands on school board members are incredibly complex right now. Districts are navigating financial pressures of inflation, enrollment shifts, temporary relief funds and economic headwinds – all of which have implications for school district budgets. Workshop participants will learn practical skills needed in strategic fiscal management, finance policy analysis and financial leadership so they can focus on deploying resources in ways that do the most for all students.
The course is hands-on and practice-based, not finance theory. The overarching goal is to help school board members make strategic spending decisions on behalf of students and rooted in their own local context while engaging communities and ensuring their systems are set up for financial sustainability.
The cost is $850 per person. Scholarships are available – apply early!
