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.

Join education finance peers and trailblazers and navigate the checkpoints and challenges of creating sustainable resource strategies for school districts. Using Allovue's SMART Pathways for Student Success as a guide, travel the five pathways and learn best practices from those who’ve traversed similar courses.
