Budget Model Workshops and Open Gyms

Several workshops and small group sessions or “Open Gyms” are held at multiple locations throughout the State, primarily in the spring and fall and during the WASB convention. District Administration and their teams have the opportunity to learn from Baird’s school finance professionals as well as collaborate with their peers on topics such as five-year forecasting, levy and mill rate planning analysis, fund balance projection and more.
