An Operational Model for the Application of Planning-Programming-Budgeting Systems to Local School Districts. Post-Pilot-Test Version. Parts One and Two.
Kiser, Chester; And Others
This 2-part document is designed to aid school districts in the implementation of a planning programing budgeting system. The first part of the manual contains (1) statements of policy, (2) a master flowchart, (3) organization and functions of a PPBS system, (4) a flowscript of procedures, (5) job outlines, and (6) supplementary appendix material. This first part of the manual represents the "what-to-do" when implementing PPBS, while the next part attacks the problem of "how-to-do-it." The second part consists of five "packages" to construct the model. The model includes two types of training materials for each of the basic project components of planning, programing, budgeting, and an instructional system analytical study. Each package of the model includes a self-instructional concept lesson that has been designed to instruct personnel on the concepts of each component. Each package further contains a set of required tasks. The guidance materials consist of worksheets, narrative instructions, examples, forms, flowcharts, and work schedules. The materials included in the model, the authors argue, should permit school officials to make immediate incremental gains in planning and decisionmaking practices with a resulting increase in the quality of educational programs.
