Working Together: Counties, School Boards, and Local Funding for Public Schools

The November 10, 2020 date has been cancelled, this course rescheduled for January 13, 2021.

This one-day course provides an overview of the governance and funding structures of public schools in North Carolina. It focuses particularly on the relationship between counties and local school administrative units. Through a series of lectures and interactive exercises, participants will learn about the legal roles and responsibilities of counties for schools and the school budgeting and expenditure processes. As a group, we will identify common issues and brainstorm ways to better address them. The course is appropriate for any county or school official or employee (including board members, managers, superintendents, budget officers and finance officers), as well as any member of the community, who wishes to learn more about school funding decisions and funding options at the local level.   


The course will be held online via Zoom. 


**Any elected officials who register and are then not re-elected on November 3, will be provided full refunds. They would also be welcome to transfer their registration and payment to someone else in their organization.**
