With school districts preparing to reopen in September, there is a critical need to provide our school business officials with timely and useful strategies to address the financial changes school districts are facing. The "WASBO Finance Conference: Reopening Wisconsin Schools” is intended to address that need. We are offering this conference with both in-person and virtual attendance options. In offering in-person attendance, we are fully committed to providing attendees with a safe and healthy learning environment.
To minimize the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 virus, and to respect the health needs of all participants, specific COVID-19 safeguards will be required. These safeguards include a temperature check upon arrival at the conference, wearing a mask throughout the day, physical distancing, use of hand sanitizer, and other precautions. In addition, the conference venue itself will have many mitigation practices in place. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
Attendees can choose to attend the conference either in-person or virtually. All sessions will be recorded and provided to attendees after the conference. Sponsorship opportunities are available!
Session topics include:
- Statewide K12 Overview
- Federal Funding and Grants
- Act 185
- CARES Act
- Short Term Borrowing
- WISEdata Finance
