Program Budgeting for Industrial Education.
Gramberg, Merlyn Ludwig
In recognition of the increasing concern for the expenditure of tax dollars and the resulting need for accountability in budgeting, this study provides a model for program budgeting at the collegiate level in industrial education. Course outlines for drafting and woodworking at the University of Northern Colorado were analyzed and activities were identified to determine student and course costs for fiscal year 1969-1970. The findings show that: (1) Student cost based on course activities can be identified and used to figure course and area cost, (2) Department financial records are necessary to determine student costs, (3) The number of contact hours in a course compared to credit hours has no significance for total cost, and (4) Estimates of yearly equipment costs require knowledge of life expectancy, maintenance records, student use, and student enrollment. The study concludes that a program budget can be developed when expenditures are known about areas such as woodworking, metalworking, and drafting. (BH)
