The Future of Education Finance Summit is a one-day event that brings education finance professionals and district leaders to network, learn, and discuss the future of education finance.
By sharing research, policy studies, and district implementation strategies, the Future of Education Finance Summit will help education leaders make informed financial decisions for their schools and their students.
This year, FEFS attendees will focus on Charting the Path. Using Allovue’s SMART Pathways for Student Success as a guide, attendees will work through the top five challenges districts face in developing a strong financial management strategy. The five pathways are:
Budget owners have control over the dollars spent at their location and are provided the corresponding professional development needed to ensure their success.
The district has the right processes, people, and tools in place to ensure that budget owners are held accountable and prepared for strategic spending.
The district has clearly articulated outcomes-based goals that are tied to dollars, with the appropriate infrastructure in place to monitor and update resource allocation decisions regularly.
Dollars are allocated to schools based on student needs. The allocation methods are transparent and updated annually to account for changing student populations.
Every district stakeholder has access to district’s allocation method, site-based budgets, and actual expenditures. This information is easily accessible and understandable for the school and district community.
