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. You can sign up to attend a single course or learn more about the entire program HERE.
The current semester of our Financial Management Certification program kicked off in February. This year’s program is offered virtually, and each course is split into two, four-hour sessions in the same week. GCSA will offer any courses that you miss during our fall semester.
This training is specifically designed to build the expertise and knowledge of charter school leaders and board members who oversee school financial operations. However, registration is open to all interested charter school employees. GCSA’s rigorous program is tailored to address the unique financial issues facing charter schools.
