Thank you for a great #MACUL21 - check back here for any resources uploaded by presenters!

Please note that SCHED does not transfer into HOPIN.  SCHED is our preview site, so you can see schedules, session information and access resources posted by speakers.  Building a schedule of sessions you want to attend in SCHED will not automatically place you into a Hopin Session.  You will have to join the Conference in Hopin, then click on the Session tile to participate in your desired sessions in Hopin. 

You must be registered for the conference to gain access to Hopin and participate in any of the sessions listed here on SCHED. SCHED requires a different log-in than MACUL’s registration system.

Conference Workshops require pre-registration and paying a separate fee to participate in the workshop. Adding a workshop to your schedule in SCHED does not enroll you in a workshop. Visit maculconference.org to register for a workshop. 

Having a profile and joining sessions here on SCHED does not sign you up for the conference. Please visit maculconference.org for more information on how to register today!

Overview of School Finance for Technology (MSBO Certification)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There are many types of technology-related expenses your school district should budget for, and some helpful guidelines on “What Stuff Costs.” The basics of the budgeting process, an overview of school finance, borrowing, and the operation of a business office will be addressed. Some of the topic areas that will be addressed are, “Where and how do grants and donations fit into the process?” How does “depreciation,” “total cost of ownership” (TCO), and “return on investment” (ROI) play a role? What are the various purchasing plans and regulations? How to negotiate rates with technology vendors? What is E-Rate? Should a district purchase or lease equipment?
