Week 3 Announcement Flyer

District Strategic Planning shows how one district incorporated two different concepts for an overall long-range plan that considers the mission and values for the district and the community. This plan aligns the funding priorities with the instructional plan and gives the Board of Education, the Superintendent and the district staff a clear roadmap for the future.

Quality Indicators of an Exemplary District provide us with a look at the best practices used by two districts chosen by the state panel of judges to be award winners for 2001. This is the opportunity to dialogue with them and set goals to be a future award winner.

The Great GASB gives us a panel of auditors to provide some framework and answers on how to prepare for the implementation from the auditor perspective. The auditors have worked with two districts that are in the first stages of implementation and will answer questions you have. So plan to bring questions.

District Revenue A to Z has been the most requested topic throughout the Institute. Show me the tax cycle and how all this gets to my desk. The Revenue Cabinet panel presents this in clear language.

Fixed Assets Management includes the pilot test districts for the MUNIS module that is used for districts to maintain district inventory. There also is technology information provided.

Financial Proficiency is presented for overall understanding of what the role of the consolidated plan is and where and how the budget drives the plan. School allocations are discussed and the session is very interactive.

Leadership Growth gives us the opportunity to reflect and then stretch ourselves in the role of a district leader.

Advanced Planning/Budgeting is the group project that will involve small group discussion and then representative verbal presentations. Here we glean knowledge from each other.
