The November 2020 election brought good news for local educational agencies as about 80% of the bonds on the ballot were approved by voters. This is much-needed funding for new construction and modernization projects in the absence of a statewide facilities bond, and will require the establishment and/or support of existing facilities and facilities-specific fiscal processes. This webinar will provide an overview of the timelines and approvals necessary for the construction and/or modernization of a school facility, and step-by-step details on the basics of school construction accounting. In addition, discussions have begun for a statewide facilities bond on the November 2022 ballot and, as such, the webinar will also offer school agencies with updates on the latest happenings in the state capitol as it relates to facilities funding.

If you are new to school construction; new to the responsibilities of school construction accounting; or if your district passed a bond, plans to issue a new bond series, or anticipates receiving state funding for school facilities, the basics are important in order to get started on the right foot. It is critical that school agencies understand the nuts and bolts of school construction and funding before they embark on these facilities projects.

This webinar can be of benefit to employees new to construction of school facilities—including accounting staff, and facilities and fiscal managers—as well as those who may just need a refresher on the many aspects of school construction from start to finish.
