Where school business leaders go to grow

Accelerate your career. Earn distinguished credentials. Become an expert in your discipline. Then, experience a thriving professional life in school business.

That’s what school business leaders get from membership in the California Association of School Business Officials (CASBO). We are your nonprofit source for professional development in all TK-14 business disciplines.

CASBO is also the place for you to stay current on school news, get understandable downloads on legislation and public school advocacy efforts, and connect with industry colleagues who are the informed, experienced feet on the ground in California’s public schools.

We’ll also help you grow your leadership and management skills to ensure you’re continually improving and advancing.

We have a governance board with bylaws and procedures like any association, along with a code of ethics that we’re glad to share at your request. These nuts and bolts exist to ensure you have what you need to perform your role effectively and efficiently. Successfully and affordably., too.

We’re glad to add your knowledge to our community, and together we’ll strengthen California’s education system to make it a role model across the country.
