Improve Your District's Credit Rating

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Participants will receive a brief overview of the rating process for their bonds, with most of the presentation focusing on those rating criteria over which school districts have the most control – financial practices, management, and policy adoption. Underlying economics, and state regulations restrict most districts’ ability to influence their credit rating, but steps can be taken to improve the financial management assessment score. The session will cover those areas of financial practices of most interest to the rating agencies, and will provide suggestions on how to best address rating agency expectations in these areas.
