School Budget: It's Your Money; It's Your Business.
Dersh, Rhoda E.
This book is a revision of a 1976 book entitled "The School Budget Is Your Business." Like the previous book, this is an attempt to demystify the school budget and the budgeting process so that lay community members can understand and make changes in both. Chapters explain what can be learned by an examination of the budget, what a school district budget is, the budgeting process, the materials that one will need to acquire to conduct an analysis of the budget, strategies that citizens can use to change the budget and the budgeting process, and how to prepare a guide that will explain to others in one's community how to conduct a budget analysis and how to effect change. Budget worksheets and other forms, charts, and checklists are included. (IRT)
