Salary and Research

MSTA’s skilled finance consultants are experts in school finance — each with more than 30 years of experience in working with school budgets, the foundation formula, school boards and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

MSTA’s finance consultants can tell you exactly what the financial condition of your school district is. Our experts will take you beyond the raw numbers and show you what it all means. They can provide a CTA with:

  • An assessment of new revenue available for salary and fringe benefit enhancement.
  • Suggested ways in which district revenue can be increased.
  • Ways to cut expenditures without sacrificing programs and salaries.
  • Recommended fund balances and ways to reduce excessive fund balances.

Salary Workshops

Due to Covid concerns, we will not be holding in-person Salary Workshops.  However, we invite you to register here if you would like a free financial analysis of your district.  Please include a valid email address and we will send you your materials when they are available.
The earliest we will be able to complete your district analysis is the end of January or the beginning of February after the Governor releases the state budget. 
When we email your districts financial materials, we will also send you the following:

  • A link to a video presentation with updated information regarding school finance issues.
  • Contact information for one of our Salary Consultants.  If you are interested, our consultants will be available for a Zoom meeting to discuss your financial analysis.

We will complete district financial analysis on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it is important to register early.
