The Budget. Introduction to Financial Management.
Strong, Dexter K.
A school budget is a carefully drawn plan to allow for the efficient educational operation of the school. Everyone connected with the management of an independent school has something to learn about a budget, the most obvious person being the new headmaster. Similarly, all department heads, the librarian, the athletic director, the members of the faculty-salary committee, a beginning teacher full of enthusiasm about a new film program, perhaps a student leader concerned about getting things done and trying to learn how things get done. In short, anyone needing school money for school purposes or responsible for its expenditure can do his educational job better if he understands the workings of the school's budget. This booklet is planned with all of these persons in mind. Discussed are timing; the roles of staff, faculty, and trustees in preparing the budget: the effect of faculty salaries on the budget; the preliminary budget; and budget control. A sample budget worksheet is also provided. (Author/JF)
