REGISTER NOW for GCSA’s Financial Management Certification Program!
GCSA’s Financial Management Certification Program is offered virtually and is comprised of six courses. Each course is split into two, four-hour sessions in the same week. This fall we are offering three courses and six additional courses will be offered in the spring. Attendees may register to attend individual courses or all courses.
Registration is open to all interested charter school employees and their Board members. This training is specifically designed to build the expertise and knowledge of charter school leaders and board members who oversee or work directly in school financial operations. Our rigorous program is tailored to address the unique financial issues facing charter schools.
Each course will be offered twice per year. See the course schedule below:
- Governmental Accounting 101: Monday, 9/18 & Wednesday, 9/20
- QBE Funding & School Budget Development: Monday, 11/27 & Wednesday, 11/29
- Policy Development, Implementation & Evaluation: Monday, 12/11 & Wednesday, 12/13
If you have any additional questions about the course, email Leslie Gabbianelli, GCSA’s Chief Financial Officer.
Each individual course costs $300 per person and you or your school will be billed upon registration. Scholarships are available for SCSC schools.
If an attendee misses a course, they will have the opportunity to complete it again in the next semester. Following each of the six required courses, attendees must take and pass an exam (with a score of 75% or higher) to earn their certification. Participants have up to three years to take and pass all exams in order to earn certification.
