Do the words “school finance” create tension for you? This session will calm your concerns by providing answers to all your questions about Iowa school finance. From understanding the Certified Budget to Spending Authority, this session will cover all your introductory Iowa school finance needs. 

  • Get hands-on practical experience in Iowa school finance, including the application of available data about revenues and expenditures to decision-making. 
  • Understand the interaction of Certified Enrollment and State Supplementary Assistance rates. 
  • Understand how school districts are held accountable for their financial health. 
  • Be able to judge a school district's financial situation and know where to suggest strategies for improving it.
  • Also learn about the differences in the role of board in setting financial expectations and that of the superintendent to implement and adjust as conditions change in the district.

All of these topics will be covered in an easy-to-understand (and fun) format. Whether you are a building administrator seeking to understand your own budget better in the context of the system or are thinking about pursuing a superintendent endorsement but fear the school finance piece, this workshop fits your need!

 

Larry Sigel will be the instructor and brings almost 30 years of public policy experience regarding the state budget, taxes, and public education. He provides easy-to-understand principles and information to help you see the big picture and confidently explain school funding to your staff, the board and the public.
