Comprehensive Curriculum

This six-month, virtual program* offers an accelerated curriculum, designed for the professional currently serving in a CBO or equivalent leadership position. Our program curriculum includes everything a working CBO needs to know about finance and budget, student transportation, food services, leadership roles, risk management, maintenance & operations, and more. Participants receive instruction in both written and oral communications; and the content is presented in a virtual lecture format, relying upon class discussion and out-of-class assignments/practical applications. Completion of the program can be used to satisfy the requirements for a CASBO CBO Certification.

*This is a hybrid program, with the majority of sessions held live online, combined with some in-person instruction. 


  1. Currently serving in a CBO position or equivalent; and
  2. 1-5+ years of experience in a district/county office of education in said position
