Finance Officer Training
The Division of District Support provides guidance for districts, providers, and finance officers regarding the types of finance officer trainings that will be approved. The finance officer serves as the financial leader of the school district and is responsible, with the assistance of the superintendent, school councils, and other finance staff, for creating a sound financial climate that reflects the district needs and expectations.
Training providers are required to complete and submit the web-based Finance Officer Training Provider Proposal Form
to the Division of District Support. The proposal form allows training providers the convenience of submitting electronically a training proposal request for the approval of a training agenda and/or program to be counted as finance officer training hours.
The web-based proposal form must be submitted to the Kentucky Department of Education's, Division of District Support at least thirty (30) business days
prior to the first scheduled program in order to be eligible for approval. The Department cannot guarantee proposals submitted after this time will be reviewed for approval. Proposals submitted to KDE after the training session has occurred will not be considered for approval.
The Finance Officer Hours List document below consists of trainings that have been approved by KDE and assigned Finance Officer numbers. The Finance Officer Training Criteria document below provides training criteria information and the Finance Officer Training Provider Proposal Form submission instructions.
