ISFIS offers many training opportunities included with the ISFIS Basic Finance Subscription.  View a sampling of those below... 


Budget Workshops

Each January & February, ISFIS partners with Piper Jaffray and Iowa’s Area Education Agencies to provide face-to-face budget preparation tools and consultation.  These hands-on workshops provide the opportunity for each district to prepare their individual annual budgets in just one highly productive day!



Join us in June each year at our annual conference to connect with school finance and policy experts.  Learn about the latest trends in Iowa school finance, business and finance tools, activities at the legislature, and much more!


CFPM Fall Workshops

Each Fall, ISFIS partners with Piper Jaffray to host a series of workshops where subscribers will have the chance to complete an in-depth five-year projection model for their district utilizing the Comprehensive Financial Projection Model (CFPM).


Custom Board or District Workshops

ISFIS designs and delivers custom workshops for board members, leadership teams or community meetings to meet a district’s unique needs.  We will provide the workshop for an individual district or groups of neighboring district boards, as requested by the school.  Custom Workshop content has already been delivered on navigating change, understanding roles and responsibilities of the board, school finance and the financial position of the district, learning about sharing opportunities, presenting information to the public about pending levy votes, and more.  ISFIS will prepare and deliver new content topics as requested.
