Managing Public School Dollars.
American Inst. of Certified Public Accountants, New York, NY.
Although this booklet focuses on methods of accumulating and analyzing management and the financial and statistical data helpful to members of school boards, equal emphasis is placed on meeting the needs of the pupil--making him more self confident, developing his skills, instilling knowledge, and inspiring creativity. It considers changes in the cost of education, the public's support of education, and the role of the school board member in meeting his responsibilities to influence education; and it discusses questions about a school's accounting system that should be examined by the school board. Other topics discussed are the use of the annual operating budget, the use of school and community demographic data in budget development, new tools for educational management, and basic suggestions to help implement program budgeting and accounting. A sample program budget is included. (Author/DN)
