Let’s face it: School finance can be about as complex as putting a person on the moon.

How can budget committee members prepare themselves to make informed decisions about their district’s resources?

Join OSBA trainers for a free, interactive webinar that provides a layperson’s understanding of the budgeting process and tips for committee members. Second only to hiring the superintendent, the school board’s role of adopting a budget to support student achievement is its most important function.

The webinar is free and starts at 12:00 p.m. PST on March 7, 2019.

Board secretaries, please pass along this training opportunity to your budget committee members who are not board members and encourage your new board members to attend!

OSBA also provides fee-based on-site trainings upon request. Contact OSBA Board Development Director Steve Kelley (skelley@osba.org) for information.

We look forward to answering your questions and providing useful information to help you in your budget preparations.
