Councilman Mann Graduates from USC

Councilman Scott Mann, who doubles as the Risk Manager for the Menifee Union School District, graduated from the University of Southern California, last month September 13, 2008, with a professional certificate in School Business Management. The certificate earned him 28 units of post-graduate work beyond the Master's level and supplements his Bachelor and Master of Business Administration Degrees.

The USC School Business Management Certificate Program, in partnership with the State of California's Financial Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) and School Services of California (SSC), is a comprehensive blend of coursework covering all aspects of school business services. It is the only program in the state that is co-sponsored by SSC and FCMAT and completion of the curriculum leads to certification as a Chief Business Official (CBO) by the California Association of School Business Officials.

The year-long program Mann completed consisted of a cohort style learning environment with coursework that included practical application and simulated problems modeled on current school business services. Program areas included school finance & accounting, transportation, purchasing & food service, new construction & facilities, maintenance & operations, and budget development & administration. The School Business Management Certificate Program is concluded with a formal thesis style field work project as the curriculum's capstone.

  2. Congratulations, Councilman Mann!

  3. finally we got someone who went to the same school as god

  4. Scott Mann has been a very positive asset to both his community and school district. As a result of his various connections he was able to propose, plan and complete safe routes for the Quail Valley school before the school officially opened. He has a hands on attitude and safety definitely comes first when it comes to youth and the community. He's a no-nonsense kind of guy and Menifee is very lucky to have a person of this stature for leadership representation and guidance. Congratulations Mr. Mann.
