KASBO Mission: To equip the membership for leadership in the integration of business and educational goals for every Kansas student.

KASBO Vision: To be recognized as the leading authority for the school business community.

KASBO Core Purpose: To support the Kansas school business profession by providing information and creating opportunities for sharing knowledge.

The intent of the KASBO mentoring program is to offer guidance to a new school business official or an employee new to a position the district.  The intent of this program is to provide a system for members to quickly access information, receive advice, or gain assistance in problem-solving.  This is presumed to be accommodated through conversations (in-person, online, phone or emils).  It is intended to be a one-year program (July1st-June 30th) and the training/guidance should be basic and fundamental.  KASBO believes that development of this formal mentoring program will allow it to continue fulfilling its mission and to "enhance the efficiency and effectiveness" of Kansas Public Schools through the development of highly qualified school finance and operations professionals.

Through the program, menttes are matched with mentors based on the mentee's technical, project-based or job orientation needs, district size and regional location.  In the application process, mentees are also asked to select their specific area of need from all six disciplines represented by KASBO.  The program then finds a match based on all the criteria.
