PPBS and the School: New System Promotes Efficiency, Accountability. Education U.S.A. Special Report.
National School Public Relations Association, Washington, DC.
This report explores the pros and cons of the PPBS management tool. It gives specific examples from school systems and describes steps in each element of PPBS, stressing (1) planning to involve everyone in formulation of instructional and noninstructional goals, (2) programing to give every school program an accomplishment that can be measured within a given time and under specific conditions, and (3) budgeting to allocate money not by line elements but by programs. The report also cites the experiences of school districts currently engaged in some form of PPBS and gives detailed recommendations for staff development and retraining in PPBS procedures.
