The Department of Business and Finance in a Public School System.
Educational Service Bureau, Inc., Washington, DC. Administrative Leadership Service.
This booklet describes the business and finance functions of managing public school systems. The role and duties of a school business administrator are discussed and qualifications, educational requirements, and certification requirements are suggested for the position. The organizational structure, operation, and duties of administrators in the school business services division of the Montgomery County, Maryland, school system are described as an example of how business and finance duties can be fitted into a school system's organizational structure. Recognizing that such a model cannot fit perfectly the unique qualities of each school system, general suggestions are made concerning objectives of the business department, organizational flexibility, qualifications for the chief business officer, and assignment of responsibilities. Finally, 15 position descriptions are provided for various business related management personnel as a further guide to more professional school business management. (TT)
