Managing Urban School System Resources: New Procedures, Addition Actors.
Hentschke, Guilbert C.
In recent years urban school systems have had to face unusually severe economic constraints. In the process of adjusting to these constraints, urban systems will likely seek new ways to reallocate existing resources and will undertake more cooperative ventures with other organizational entities to gain access to additional resources. Four strategies for reallocating existing resources in school systems are discussed: zero-base budgeting, long-range planning, internal audit functions, and systems for personnel development. This is followed by a description of two strategies for generating additional instructional resources, one involving career education, the other involving innovative organizational arrangements of the school system.
