Education-Planning-Programming-Budgeting System Documentation Manual for School Districts, Version II, Model 1.
Pennsylvania Univ., Philadelphia. Government Studies Center.
This document details a semiautomated PPB system developed in an ESEA Title III project, Intermediate Unit Planning Study, for use in Pennsylvania (see EA 002 750). Two semiautomated versions were developed, both dependent for calculation on the use of electronic data processing equipment. This is a documentation manual for the first of these versions, the batch-processed version. Testing of the batch-processed version for both school districts and intermediate units was completed in April 1969. A report on the development and testing of the second version, the on-line version, will be completed in May 1970. This manual, for use by the school districts, includes a sample school district printout, a suggested work schedule, and program documentation for the system analyst. The manual of the batch-processed version for the intermediate units is EA 002 752. Other related documents are EA 002 751 and EA 002 753. (DE)
