An appendix illustrates the systems outlined. Chapter 2, "The Annual Budget," outlines the steps involved in preparing budgets and includes four appendixes. "Tuition," chapter 3, provides a detailed discussion of the pricing formula and time of collection along with five appendixes with sample forms. "Long-Range Planning," chapter 4, delineates the differing roles and responsibilities of the pastor, principal, and school board in planning development, and includes eight appendixes. Chapter 5, "Fundraising," presents different fund-raising strategies and includes detailed examples. In chapter 6, "Steps Toward Development," the process involved in operating a development fund is outlined. (MD)
