SBOs have the opportunity to impact the community in ways big and small; from efficient and effective use of district funds, to ensuring students have access to transportation and nutritious meal options, to getting a new school or stadium built - nothing gets done without Ohio's SBOs.
Some roles, such as Treasurer/CFO and Business Manager, require a college degree and/or a license from the Ohio Department of Education. Other roles, such as Transportation Supervisor or Food Service Director, require extensive field experience and can also require other specialized certification(s). Continuing education is expected in all of these roles.
Career journeys for school business officials are as varied as their personalities. Few actually spend an entire career in one position in one district. Many others spend a career in one role, but have a "tour of duty" among several districts. Others change roles within the profession. All proudly serve Ohio’s most precious resources, our children.
