Program Budgeting for School Districts. Supplement to Handbook 3 Budgeting.
Cerrito, August E.
The purpose of this handbook is to help clarify some of the procedural aspects leading to implementation of a program budgeting system and thereby assist those boards of education and administrators contemplating installation of program budgeting and, ultimately, a comprehensive program, planning, budgeting, system within their districts. The publication begins by considering the history, background, and purpose of program budgeting. A 2-phase model to implement program budgeting is then developed. Phase I is basically a program costing mechanism that generates cost data for identified educational programs. The program structure is arranged by locations (building units), programs (grade level), and sub-programs (subject area within grade level). Phase II includes rudimentary planning, programing, and evaluation components within the budgeting cycle. Ten illustrative data forms to be used in program budgeting are included. A selected bibliography on program budgeting is included. (Author/DN)
