Model for Cost Per Pupil for Vocational Education Programs and Types of Schools.
Gasior, Albert G.; And Others
The study was designed to develop a model for the collection and analysis of cost data for defining the cost per pupil per program per type of school (area vocational or comprehensive). An advisory committee of New Jersey State Department of Education personnel and vocational educators was selected to provide unbiased input. The selected programs were practical nursing and health related occupations, each offered by different comprehensive high schools. The project proceeded according to 29 tasks illustrated in a flow chart. Five of the tasks, concerned with data collection using the model for calculating per pupil costs, were explained in detail. After review of the model and cost data, the advisory committee approved the model as reasonable for data collection. Five conclusions and six recommendations concerning use of the model are stated in the report. Appended materials (122 pages) include: definition of terms, advisory committee meeting materials, a two part literature review, task, task flow chart, cost of utilities (electricity), expenditures and cost computations for the two programs (for health occupations using the program budget accounting system and for practical nursing using the traditional accounting system).
