Webinar Recording: Financial and Legal Risks for School Districts

This H2R CPA webinar was presented live on May 27, 2020. The webinar recording can be accessed here. A PDF of the webinar presentation can be accessed here.

Webinar Summary

School board members and leadership continue to manage the effects of COVID-19. From remote teaching to canceling graduation ceremonies, the state of confusion is more likely to continue for the 2020/2021 school year instead of being resolved during the summer months.

Not only do school leaders need to plan for disruptions to teaching their students, they should also start to plan for disruptions to their operations in general for the next few years. Schools are likely to see a reduction in revenue as property owners appeal their property assessments and some property owners simply may not pay their taxes due to economic disruptions caused by COVID-19. The best way to plan for these disruptions is to prepare a financial forecast that anticipates as many variables as possible while understanding there are risks to all decisions.

Our team of presenters will provide insight into challenges school leaders may need to address in the coming years and the best way to prepare their district for these difficult decisions. To answer as many questions as possible, we ask attendees to pre-submit their questions during the registration process. There will also be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

Please understand, during these evolving times, we may not have answers to all questions and an answer provided today may change tomorrow.
