Live Virtual Q&A Sessions

In order to assist schools in understanding the fiscal requirements for the program and provide schools with the opportunity to ask question on the training materials, the department will provide a series of live virtual sessions.  These sessions are optional but the department strongly encourages schools attend the sessions.  The first part of each session will provide an overview of one or more of the fiscal management topics.  The remainder of the session will be open for questions on any topics in the fiscal management training.  The department strongly encourages that participants watch the required on demand virtual modules on each topic prior to the corresponding live session. 

Since the department will be sharing PowerPoints and/or screens on Microsoft Teams during the training, participants are encouraged to participate online with Microsoft Teams by clicking on the applicable Microsoft Teams Participation Link below.  However, an audio only option is available if a school does not have an Internet connection during the training.

If you would like to receive reminders about these sessions, please complete this Q&A registration form (advanced registration is not required).
