SCHOOL FINANCE WEBINAR

A webinar has been scheduled for Tuesday, July 1, 2014 (9:30 AM to 12:00 PM CST).  This webinar will provide information on the budget process and State Aid. Additional details are available on the FOS/Webinars webpage.  Note: The presentation materials will be posted on this webpage on or before June 30, 2014.

NEW SUPERINTENDENT ORIENTATION

There will be two orientations for “new” superintendents and their bookkeepers in July (see below).  The focus of these orientations is to help individuals (who are starting their first year or completing their first year as a superintendent) become comfortable with the budget process and related school finance issues.  Invitations and registration information will be sent directly to this group of “new” superintendents by the end of June; however, any superintendent and their bookkeeper may register to attend these orientations.
