IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT #1

The Board of Directors for the Oklahoma Association of School Business Officials would like to announce the selection of Kimberly Bauer as its new Professional Development Coordinator.

Ms. Bauer comes to us having served as the Director of Purchasing at an Oklahoma public school. Kim understands firsthand the challenges facing school leaders. She has a passion for professional development.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT #2

The OKASBO Board of Directors would also like to announce the creation of the OKASBO Institute of School Business and Finance (OISBF). The Institute will begin operations September 1st. Ms. Bauer will oversee the OISBF.

The OKASBO Institute of School Business and Finance will be offering three levels of certification workshops.   Levels 1, 2, and 3 will build on each other with a set curriculum for each level. Instruction and work will not be limited to just during the workshop. Participants will receive monthly assignments to complete. The tasks will compliment sessions either covered in the last session or to be included in the upcoming session.

Level participants will be assigned a mentor to assist them with their journey. Each of the three levels will meet at the same time, in the same location, but in different rooms. We are holding them at the same time and place to encourage networking between the participants of each level.

OKASBO will be adjusting its certification program. Our ultimate plan is for our participants to be eligible to take the ASBO International SFO Certification exam once they have completed Levels 1, 2, and 3 if they would like to do so.

OKASBO and the Institute know business officials have many different titles and a wide variety of duties. We also know many of you wear multiple hats, even if you only have one title. With that, The OISBF will also be offering classes for treasurers, encumbrance clerks, activity fund custodians, payroll & HR professionals, and other options.  Preparations for these offers are underway now..
