School funding is a hot topic in Massachusetts that will only heat up when the Legislature reconvenes in January. Do you know how management decisions, wide-ranging policies and resource allocation intersect to impact student success across multiple contexts including your own? Join us for this two-day interdisciplinary program combining finance, economics and leadership with public policy and administration will help you understand everything you need to know.
Participants will learn
- How policy affects equity and resource use
- How to more effectively consume and use education finance information at the federal, state and local levels in the K-12 education system
- How to more strategically drive resource allocation decisions to reach desired outcomes and avoid unintended consequences that can negatively impact students, schools and communities
- How to understand and effectively grapple with the challenges of productivity and financial tradeoffs in an environment of finite education dollars
- How to communicate finance strategy and decisions
Areas of study include allocation and accountability structures, instruction delivery model impacts and implications, effects of ESSA and state policy in local context, productivity analyses and common (but offten ill understood) cost drivers in education. Participants will have the option to continue online study to earn a Certificate of Education Finance from Georgetown University and earn 4.0 CEUs.
The two-day program will take place November 28 and 29, 2018
