Webinar - School Finance & Budget Committee Basics

March 16, 2021, 12:00 pm

School Finance Budget Committee Webinar

Join OSBA trainers for a free, interactive webinar on school finance, the budgeting process, and tips for budget committee members. How do Oregon public schools obtain their funding?  What is the formula that distributes money to districts?  What does it mean if something is “weighted?” What can budget committee members do to make informed decisions about their district’s resources?
This webinar will explain school finance and the budget committee’s role in an understandable way.

This webinar is free and starts at 12:00 p.m. on March 16, 2021. Make sure to reserve your spot today!

Board secretaries, please encourage all your board members and budget committee 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.
