Abstract

This internship was conducted under the direction of the Associate Superintendent for Administrative Services for Kent Intermediate School District. The scope of the resources available were not restricted to a single school district, but included examples available from the twenty-one districts in Kent County. This provided a composite view of the way districts are managed.

This was further developed by participation at meetings, in-service sessions and conferences of the Grand Valley School District Officials, Southwest Michigan School Business Officials, in meetings with educational lobbyists and leaders of the Michigan School Business Officials, and in meetings with area legislators.

The. experience gained through this internship were many and diverse, however this report shall deal with one component only, the role of financial management as it applied to the school business manager. Knowledge and skills were also developed in the areas of budgeting, cash management, investments, and an understanding of current legislation affecting the financial component of public schools.
