This workshop will be conducted by the DPI School Finance Team. Although open to all, this "how to do it from the ground up" workshop is geared toward new administrators or those with less than 3 years' experience. It will include:

  • A detailed discussion and hands-on practice of the 2020-21 revenue limit calculation
  • What to do with the October 1st Equalized Property Valuation from DOR and the October 15th General Aid Certification from DPI
  • Determining the impact of the exempt business computer valuation ("Computer Aid")
  • Conceptual overview of Equalization & Special Adjustment Aid (General Aid)
  • How the pieces all fit together (revenue limit/general aid/levy; equalized property valuation/levy/mill rate)

The extended time will allow participants to use their own district's numbers to do the various calculations with hands-on help from the School Finance Team. The goal is for you to be confident in your budget, revenue limit and general aid numbers so the board can certify your district's levy correctly. This is your opportunity to make sure you're getting it right!

The workshop will begin at 9 am and conclude around 2 pm with lunch provided.

** Please note: WASDA intends to continue to provide professional learning opportunities for our members in 2020-21. At this time, the method of delivery for those opportunities will be dependent on the guidance from public health officials and compliance with any restrictions on assembly. We are prepared to provide in-person, virtual, and hybrid spaces for our members to gather, learn, collaborate, and network. Registrants will be provided updates as our future unfolds.
