Each year Heartland AEA hosts school budget workshops for public school district administrators. Workshop days are typically split into morning sessions and afternoon sessions, with the morning reserved for new business managers and superintendents or those who have less experience, and the afternoon sessions reserved for those more veteran managers and superintendents. The sessions for veteran managers and superintendents includes working with each district and developing the district’s certified budget and tax certification documentation.
Sessions are typically held in February and March in the computer lab at the Heartland AEA Johnston Regional Education Center (6500 Corporate Drive) and are facilitated by Larry Sigel and Margaret Buckton of Iowa School Finance Information Services. Registration information is usually available the November before the workshops.
School Finance Consultation
The Agency’s Business Office staff is also available to consult with district business managers on issues relating to school finance.
