About the CBO Training Program
The CBO Training Program is a comprehensive school fiscal management training with a unique, charter school-specific focus.
The program delves into the key fiscal management skills required of California charter school directors, business officers, governing board treasurers, and charter-granting agency staff members who have significant financial management and/or oversight responsibilities.
The CBO Training Program is designed to keep schools on the right track and to successfully navigate any potential budgetary pitfalls that they may encounter.
Dates and Locations
The full CBO Training Program consists of a series of in-person and online sessions.
In-person trainings will be held at the Hilton Sacramento Arden West. There will be three multi-day, in-person trainings:
- Monday, February 5 and Tuesday, February 6, 2018
- Monday, April 2 and Tuesday, April 3, 2018
- Monday, April 23 through Wednesday, April 25, 2018
Online sessions will be provided to supplement the in-person trainings. Online sessions are hosted via the Blackboard Learn learning management system and consist of multimedia presentations, assignments, and quizzes. Participants are expected to complete these online trainings in preparation for the in-person sessions.
The '18 CBO Training Program modules cover a wide range of fiscal management topics of relevance to California charter school directors, business officers, governing board treasurers, and charter-granting agency staff members.
The '18 CBO Training Program modules include updates to perennial features of the programs (e.g., funding system fundamentals, categorical programs management, cash flow, etc.) as well as the addition of an entirely new module: "Module 16: Financial Management Ethics."
