Description & Overview

This session will be held at in the MASB Offices - Room A -  starting at 9:00 am and ending at 4:00 pm, August 20 - 22, 2018.

We've heard from a lot of our new members that they need a more comprehensive training to start them off on the right foot in Pupil Auditing. 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 Auditor 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.

In order to make this session as productive as possible for those attending, we will be limiting enrollment to 15.

Agenda & Speakers

Day 1 - Pupil Accounting and Auditing 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 3 populations, to all the forms to use and the documents to gather.

Day 2 - Auditing in Depth - Jill Slaght and Nicole Snyder will take attendees through the desk and field audit process, from start to finish. All 3 populations will be explained, as well as the Graduation rate audit 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 districts meet them (and what it will cost if they don't!). In the afternoon, Jill and Nicole will take you through a calendar-based review of how to complete an audit, 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 audits go smoothly.
