Duval County Schools, Jacksonville, FL.
The Duval County (Florida) Public Schools have developed a 14-step model for planning and developing school-based program budgets. The steps include (1) developing a projected basic operating budget, (2) performing a needs assessment, (3) developing plans for annual school instructional improvement, (4) ranking needs and improvement plans for the coming budget year, (5) determining costs of the plans, (6) correlating cost requirements with total allocation, (7) finalizing an initial school-based budget, (8) documenting plans for instructional improvement, (9) reviewing the plans (performed by assistant superintendents), (10) finalizing the school-based budget, (11) developing evaluation designs for the improvement plans, (12) developing an evaluation report on the plans at the end of the year, (13) recycling and updating the budget and the plans, and (14) developing an annual school report. This document describes the model and provides a prototype of the model in action using "data" from a fictitious "typical" school. A variety of report forms presenting the fictional data are included as illustrative examples. (Author/PGD)
