Operational PPBS for Education. A Practical Approach to Effective Decision Making. Series in Administration.
Alioto, Robert F.; Jungherr, J. A.
The basic purpose of this book is to provide a practical approach for the introduction and installation of a PPB system. Part one describes the components necessary for an operationalized PPB system, suggests methods of achieving those components, and attempts to illustrate some of the risks and problems involved in the developmental process. Part two provides a comprehensive example, by means of a procedures manual and a display document, of how to collect, analyze, and display the necessary information for a viable PPB system. Part three includes representative samples of various forms and other materials that have been developed by school districts in order to facilitate the implementation of a PPB system. The authors stress wide involvement of staff, community, and board members throughout the entire installation process; advise districts to begin with the information and procedures that already exist; and alert practitioners to the necessity of being realistic in their expectations during the installation of a PPB system. The numerous techniques and strategies described provide a basis for evolving a PPBS suitable to the needs of individual school districts. (Author)
