Tools to help with budgeting, enrollment forecasting, and more

Spreadsheets and DASL and bears, oh my! There are many, many tools that have already been created to help with budgeting, enrollment forecasting, pay equity analysis, PPP loan forgiveness, classroom reconfiguration, and benchmarking for salaries and other expenses. We will look at some of the favorites and dig into how and why to use them - and when to take what they show you with a grain of salt. There will be spreadsheets and there will be DASL - there might also be a bear or two.
