Measurement of Levels of Knowledge of and Attitudes Toward Program Planning and Budgeting Systems.
Jaffy, Sybil F.
The purpose of this research was to ascertain the degree to which staff members in the Beverly Hills Unified School District were knowledgeable about the concept of accountability in public education and specifically Program Planning and Budgeting Systems (PPBS), and to obtain indicators pertaining to the climate for receptivity toward this concept. A video tape was shown simultaneously to all staff members, and a questionnaire was then administered which among other data revealed: 1) A low level of training and knowledge of Program Planning and Budgeting Systems; 2) A positive statistical relationship between staff members who felt negative about the concept of accountability and those who felt negative about their own job performance conditions, and the converse positive statistical relationship; 3) The value of video tape as an information tool; and 4) The overwhelming response for a desire to know more about PPBS and accountability.
