The Cost of Being Accountable: An Objective-Referenced Program Cost Model for Educational Management--A Maryland Perspective.
Holowenzak, Stephen P.; Stagmer, Robert A.
This publication describes in detail an objective-referenced program cost model for educational management that was developed by the Maryland State Department of Education. Primary purpose of the publication is to aid educational decision-makers in developing and refining their own method of cost-pricing educational programs for use in state and local accountability efforts. Individual chapters focus in turn on the educational and political context surrounding the development of Maryland's model, the use of a blueprint of Maryland's objective-referenced cost model, adaptation of the Maryland model at the state level, adaptation of the Maryland model at the local level, and adaptation of the Maryland model at the school building level.
