Cutting Costs: Successful Ways to Reduce School Expenditures. Current Trends in School Policies & Programs. Education U.S.A. Special Report.
How to decrease school operating costs without hurting the quality of education is the subject of this report, which contains suggestions gleaned from school districts all over the country in a survey conducted by the National School Public Relations Association. The most important attitude that all members of the school community can hold is an attitude supporting conservation in all areas, including, of course, conservation of energy. Chapters of this report cover, in addition to energy conservation, staff utilization, facilities use, building maintenance, school organization, cooperative purchasing, student transportation, food service, and vandalism. The opportunities for conservation of school resources are present in these days of declining enrollment, but schools must plan carefully to realize savings. (Author/DS)
