Finance for School Management Teams

Finance for School Management Teams

As a member of the School Management Team, you will be expected to be completely comfortable with all the financial aspects of the school.  Depending on your school and S.M.T. structure, you may also be expected to become actively involved in various financial aspects of the school.  This may be extremely daunting and stressful if you have never had any exposure to this aspect of management.  Furthermore, while finance is largely an S.G.B.  function, it is the principal of the school who is held finally accountable should any mismanagement be found.  It is thus imperative to be au fait with all financial principles.
