The Responsibilities of the School Business Administrator in Small School Districts. A Research Report. Research Bulletin No. 16.
Kaiser, Dale E.; Webb, O. Glenn
School business administration is recognized as an important component of educational administration. The current trend toward the administrative team concept of administration has added prestige and importance to the function of the school business administrator. The study reported here revealed that a large percentage of present school districts do not have an enrollment that allows the administrative staff to have much depth and specialization. However, as pupil enrollment increases above 1,500 pupils, the superintendent is able to appoint specialized administrators to perform school business administration tasks. The Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) should encourage superintendents of the small school districts that do not have support personnel who are members of the ASBO to become members of the association themselves.
