School District Finance Workshop
For most districts, financial pressures are intensifying as federal relief funds wind down, enrollments shift, and labor costs continue to rise, all against the backdrop of an economic downturn. Decisions made at this spring’s budget meetings will play a critical role in ensuring that the district’s limited funds are able to deliver the most for its students.
This 8-hour workshop is designed to equip district leaders, school board members and advocates with the practical skills needed in strategic fiscal management, finance policy analysis, and financial leadership and communication.
Format: Participants will join 4 virtual sessions: April 18, 19, 25 and 26 from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET each day.
Price: $850 per person. Participants will receive a packet of materials ahead of the training. Materials will provide access to customized data and learning.
Group rates are available. Contact Jordan.Tollefson@georgetown.edu for more info.
