Model for Educational Accountability--Development of a Planning Programming Budgeting Evaluation System. Final Report. Research Series No. 11.
Fargo Public Schools, ND.
The Fargo Public School System has completed a three-year project on a Planning-Programming-Budgeting-Evaluation System (PPBES). The two major purposes of this project were to develop a model for PPBES and to implement this system in the school district operation. Project activities included work in all four of the PPBES phases. The planning stage was considered the foundation of the system. Several administrators and teachers were involved with various tasks in this phase. The project staff developed a multilevel program structure outline to encompass and relate all activities that take place in the Fargo district. In the programming phase, the staff sought to select the best route to achieve goals and objectives developed in the first phase. An innovation in the budgeting stage was the assigning of expenditures to specific school programs. The evaluation phase is used to enable school districts to determine the extent to which their objectives are achieved. The project staff feels that the system has many merits, can be very useful in providing important information to decision-makers, and can be very efficient in assisting districts to provide educational accountability.
