School Finance 101, 201 and 301 Digital Workshops

Our popular school finance workshops are back and better than ever! These workshops are normally held during Annual Convention in November. After we made the decision to hold Convention online this year, we opted to move the school finance workshops to accommodate your busy schedules. These digital workshops are two hours in length and will be held via Zoom.

Special thanks to Forecast5 Analytics for sponsoring these workshops.
