  • School Business Officials

    How to Create an Award-Winning Budget
    The most scrutinized and utilized financial report in school district financial reporting is the annual budget. Therefore, communicating budget information to the community is critical. This workshop, based on the Association of School Business Officials International's Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) criteria, will show participants how to develop a budget document that meets today’s most rigorous demands using guidelines specifically created for school entities.

    Secrets of the Effective District Administration Team and the Role of the Rock Star Business Administrator
    Educators are exceptional people being drawn to their 'callings' to help others. Education requires funding and financial controls. Business Officials ensure fiscal accountability. School business departments can be viewed as a necessary evil as they seemingly restrict desires and goals of educators. Potential conflict between 'Education' and 'Business' staff need not exist. Attendees will acquire tangible skills and strategies to unify departments. It is possible for the Teacher and the Accountant to be friends.


  • School Safety Officers

    Reasonable Accommodations in the Time of COVID-19
    Learn from school board association attorneys how school districts across Oregon are complying with their duty under the ADA to provide reasonable accommodations to staff returning (or not) to the schoolhouse as districts begin to reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Find out what creative, out-of-the-box thinking and tried-and-true strategies have served districts in supporting employees with anxiety or conditions placing them in high-risk categories, while maintaining high-quality educational services to students, in these extraordinary times.
