Special offering for CFO/Business staff
Serving as the Chief Financial Officer, Business Manager, or anywhere in the business/finance staff in one of our districts presents a special set of challenges. Sometimes, being new to that role can be especially tough. That's why we're partnering with our friends at the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) to provide a special training opportunity for those serving in that role, and especially those who are new to that role.

We will cover some of the nuts and bolts for business officials in our districts, talk about timing, deadlines, and what you can do to put your district in the best possible position during the legislative session to predict and plan (as much as we can!).

If this sounds like something that interests you, please mark your calendar for Tuesday, December 8, at 2:00 p.m. You can register via the link below. Or if you know of someone else in your district who might benefit from this offering, please forward this message their way.
