The release of the Governor’s Budget on January 10, 2019, will be the first official indication of the Governor’s priorities for the state as a whole and for K-12 education specifically.

The Basics of School Construction and School Construction Accounting
February 2019

It is critical that school agencies understand the nuts and bolts of school construction and funding before they embark on these construction projects. This workshop provides an overview of the timelines and approvals necessary for the construction and/or modernization of a school facility as well as step-by-step details on the basics of school construction accounting.

Associated Student Body
Online

NOTE: As of May 2017 the content of this workshop has been verified as current (we periodically review our online workshops to ensure relevancy and applicability to current requirements and practices).

The number one area for findings in an audit report are those in the area of Associated Student Body (ASB). It is critical that district- and site-level staff receive training in this area on a regular basis to ensure that the district, as well as the employees, are being protected.

This online format will allow school agencies to build capacity within their organizations by expanding the number of employees that receive training who are involved in the handling of ASB funds.
