About the Workshop

Educational leaders in California have an opportunity to leverage our state funding for the programs and services that we value the
most at the local level. The supplemental and concentration grant funds can have broad application to support our children with
the greatest needs. And, after several years of significant funding increases, today’s decisions are even more critical as revenues are
beginning to flatten and resources for ongoing programs are likely to become more scarce.

The leaders who have the greatest success with this model are the ones who best understand its challenges and opportunities.
The purpose of this workshop is to take the complexities of school finance and distill them so that superintendents and other top administrators of local educational agencies (LEAs) can use financial information for improved policy decisions. With many decades of
experience in school agency finance and governance, top experts from the Fiscal Crisis & Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) and
School Services of California, Inc., (SSC) have teamed up to bring this must-attend event for school agency nonfinancial administrators.
