PPBS: Design of Selected Programming Elements. The Report of a Project Made at the Request of the Board of Education, Union Free District #2, Town of Cheektowaga.
Maryvale Central School District, Cheektowaga, NY.; State Univ. of New York, Buffalo. Dept. of Educational Administration.
The significance of a planning-programing-budgeting system for educational use lies in its ability to improve educational planning and cost effectiveness. As part of the Western New York PPBS project, a model for implementing PPBS in districts of fewer than 25,000 students was developed and tested. The completed model consists of three components: planning, programing, and budgeting. This document reports on the four elements in the programing component: (1) program structure, the framework designed to achieve educational objectives; (2) program criteria, the measures of effectiveness of stated programs; (3) feedback mechanisms, the procedures to facilitate information return on costs and attainment of objectives; and (4) multiyear cost, the techniques to facilitate forecasting of future educational needs.
