The foremost duty of any school business official is to ensure the safety and security of our students (and the peace of mind of their parents). Yet, this year has brought unprecedented challenges. How are you keeping up day over day? What’s keeping you up at night? For many, perhaps even most, it’s the next malicious cyberattack.

The presenters will demystify the complexity of cybersecurity, detail the risks, and outline immediate steps to help ensure the safety and security of your school district.

The publication of new school-by-school spending data by every state in the country is transforming the education finance landscape, offering unprecedented opportunities to leverage the data to inform spending decisions and communicate about how resources are allocated to schools. While bringing a host of challenges—district and school leaders are largely unprepared to engage on issues the data will raise, such as equity, spending trade-offs, and the link between money and outcomes—the new data also present an incredible opportunity for districts to communicate openly and honestly, solicit input, and build trust around budgeting and spending practices. These challenges and opportunities are especially critical during economically uncertain times, when the financial outlook for public education is changing rapidly. This session was originally recorded for the 2020 Envision virtual conference.
