The State of State Certification for School Business Officials
ASBO International’s policy brief, The State of State
Certification for School Business Officials, illustrates how
dramatically policies differ from state to state in the U.S. The
report examines the wide variety of certification policies and programs
in the United States, from strict state requirements for education and
experience in the field, to no requirements or certification
As of August 2004, sixteen states require school business officials to be certified, yet all but two of these states are in the eastern half of the U.S. Some states have begun to add provisions to support the development of business managers over the course of a career.
This report provides stories from states with different certification structures, and reviews trends in professional standards. It concludes with elements of model policy options for state leaders to consider.
