OASBO's goal for the mentoring program is to attract and retain the caliber of people required to successfully manage school business and operations. We want you succeed in the school business profession!
 

Eligibility

The program is open to all Business Managers, Food Service Supervisor/Directors, Treasurers, and Transportation Supervisor/Directors who are OASBO Professional or Associate members.


Fee and Credits

The mentoring program is included in your OASBO membership dues. Both mentors and protégés receive a guide book, and contact hours for the number of hours spent together and logged. At the end of the mentoring engagement, the mentor receives a $500 donation for their district.
 

Matching Mentor with Protégé

The OASBO Mentoring Program is driven by both the protégé and the mentor, so the match is critical. OASBO takes into consideration the demographics, location, areas of specialization, and any special requests and needs of the protégé during mentor-protégé matching.
