Track 1: Fundamentals of School Finance
This session will provide a fundamental understanding of the Iowa School Finance System and the necessary basic vocabulary to communicate both with staff and the public. Participants will leave the session knowing the role of the general fund versus other school district funds, miscellaneous income, the cash reserve levy, the Aid and Levy Worksheet, and the budget process; as well as the relationship between the unspent balance to the cash balance and the undesignated/ unreserved balance.
