More than half of Wisconsin school districts have less than 1,000 students and do not employ a licensed school business manager. WASBO conference data suggests that many school business office professionals (SBOPs) in small/rural settings do not have convenient access to professional development tailored to the profession. Beyond the small/rural market, the intended audience also includes business office specialists (e.g. payroll or accounts payable) who wish to explore a career in school business management, or simply want to learn and grow in their present role.
