Cost-Effective Business Practices of Schools in Massachusetts. A Collaborative Dissemination Project.
Merrimack Education Center, Chelmsford, MA.
The verified successful business practices described in this booklet were being used by Massachusetts schools in the late 1970s. The practices have resulted in cost savings, are generally easy to replicate, and usually do not require major capital outlay. The practices listed are largely conservation practices or relate to food service management, but cooperative transportation and purchasing practices are also discussed. For each money-saving measure the book gives a brief description, estimated efficiency or cost savings, and a contact person. The book refers the reader to more complete case studies that further describe many of the practices. (Author/JM)
