The Mooresville Grade School District Board of Education recognized the MGSD school treasurers for completing the NCASBO Treasurer Academy. This academy was established to provide school treasurers with a comprehensive training program in the area of school finance. The Academy provides focused training in order to:
- Promote the highest professional and ethical standards of school business management practices for NC schools;
- Offer practical information that will help school treasurers succeed and excel in their employment; and,
- Establish a basis for advancing professionalism of school treasurers to assure school districts that they have a base knowledge about laws, regulations, and procedures for the ultimate benefit of the students of North Carolina’s public school system.
The Academy has been designed so that an individual can attain the certification status in three sessions of two days each for a total of twelve different course topics. Upon successful completion of course work, participants will receive a certificate verifying completion of the NCASBO School Treasurer Academy.
NCASBO certification courses provide a great deal of information in a short time. Courses are in-depth training rather than classes in theory and are intended to cover practical major points about their respective topics, offer an opportunity for questions and discussion, and provide resource information for future use.
