ASBO's International School Business Management Professional Standards and Code of Ethics
In March 2006, ASBO released its 2nd Edition of the International School Business Management Professional Standards and Code of Ethics, detailing nearly 200 professional standards and a 28-point Ethical Code that encompasses Standards, Conduct, and Expectations of Personal and Professional Integrity.
Everything has a bottom line, and when it comes to educating children, that bottom line is calculated in more than dollars.
School business officials are responsible for ensuring every child in the district has the resources he or she needs to learn, and every teacher and principal has the tools and resources to provide an effective learning environment. This includes everything from reliable transportation and nutritious meals, to secure and safe buildings and up-to-date technology.
ASBO recognizes that it is essential that the person in this role possess many specific attributes.
