Participants of GCSA’s Policy Development, Implementation and Evaluation Course will learn the basics of policy development, implementation, and evaluation. Policy topics include budget development, budget amendments, internal controls, spending limits and approval requirements, policy development and implementation best practices, and effective policies. Participants will also understand how to align policies with mission and school culture, how to align budgeting policy with strategic planning and forecasting, how to mitigate risk through policy development, how to update policies, and how to monitor ongoing financial performance.
The Policy Development, Implementation & Evaluation Course is one of six courses offered in GCSA’s Financial Management Certification Program. This program is open to all interested charter school employees, board members and support organizations. We’re offering three courses this fall and six additional courses this spring.
