About the Webinar

The economy, at least the economic impact on the state’s General Fund, has done an about-face and revenues are coming in fast and furious. Communicating the ever-changing financial picture, as well as understanding and managing school district and charter school budgets is critically important. Join us as we get back to the basics and discuss critical tasks such as managing personnel costs and building multiyear projections, as well as a plethora of tips and tricks for completing and monitoring your budget. This two-part webinar series is a “must” for those who face the task of building, analyzing, and monitoring departmental, school district, or charter school budgets, as well as those being prepared for such positions.
