Description & Overview

This session will be held at in the MASB Board Room starting at 9:00 am and ending at 4:00 pm, July 23 - 25, 2018.

We've heard from a lot of our new members that they need more comprehensive training to start them off on the right foot in Pupil Accounting. In response to this request, we've created a 3-day boot camp to give those new to the field a firmer grounding in the basics.

Attendees who complete the Boot Camp will have 5 of the required courses for the Pupil Accounting Specialist completed, and have a great start on their MSBO certification. Each attendee will receive full printouts of all presentations as well as additional references and documentation in a handy reference binder.

To make this session as productive as possible for those attending, we will be limiting enrollment to 30.

Agenda & Speakers

Day 1 - Pupil Accounting Basics - Kristina Tokar and Barbette Lane will be taking you through the basics of Pupil Accounting, from learning the terms and acronyms, through working with the three populations, to all the forms to use and the documents to gather.

Day 2 - CEPI and State Reporting - Rob Dickinson and Kathi Thornton will be going over what CEPI collects, and how you are required to report it.  You'll learn what applications you need to report data to, and we'll spend time in the actual applications explaining the inner workings and how to know where your data is in the submission process.

Day 3 - Days and Hours & "The Recipe" - Rob Dickinson will spend the morning explaining the days and hours requirements, and how to make sure your buildings meet them (and what it will cost if they don't!). In the afternoon, he will take you through a calendar-based review of how to complete a count day, from before school starts through the end of the audit. The items that need to be addressed at each step will be addressed, and helpful hints will be given on how to make sure your submission and audit go smoothly.
