Program Budgeting for School District Planning.
Haggart, Sue A., Ed.
Program budgeting is more than a neat method of budgeting by program; hence it requires more than just concentration on budgeting and accounting procedures. Program budgeting, basically a resource allocations system, stresses the setting of objectives, grouping activities into programs to meet the objectives, identifying the resources required by the programs, and measuring the effectiveness of the programs in meeting the objectives. The purpose of the program budgeting effort is to provide the organized data base for the systematic selection of the preferred course of action. This means that alternative programs are evaluated in terms of their impact on present programs and in terms of their future consequences. (Author)
