Virtual Training

September 29-October 1, 2020

11 a.m.-3 p.m. ET

  • Field of Study: Finance
  • Credits: 14
  • Prerequisite: Past experience working for a school district and familiarity with budget process

This virtual training will provide participants with an opportunity to acquire hands-on, practical implementation of GFOA's best practices in school budgeting. The program is structured around the best practices in school budgeting framework, which includes guidelines to develop a comprehensive budget process that fosters collaboration between academic and finance staff to develop strategic goals and allocate scarce resources accordingly. The end goal of the new budget process focuses on aligning these scarce resources to focus on optimizing student achievement. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting recession have forced school districts to re-think how they provide instruction to their students and are able to best facilitate the instruction, whether virtual, in-person, or a hybrid model.

Who Will Benefit: mid- to senior-level staff from school districts from both the academic and budget and finance areas
