The School Business Administrator. Bulletin No. 21. Third Edition (Revised).
Hill, Frederick W.; And Others
This bulletin examines the role and function of the school business administrator and offers practical information applicable to both administrators and institutions employing and evaluating them. After a brief introduction concerning the history of school business administration, the publication describes the responsibilities of the position, its place in school system organization, and the preparation, experience, and personal characteristics of a school business administrator. Then, directed to employing institutions, chapters discuss when a school system needs a school business administrator, certification and required credentials, and procedures for establishing a position, obtaining a qualified person, and determining the salary. A separate chapter concerns women in the occupation. The final chapters deal with legal implications, a code of ethics, evaluation, and emerging issues, problems, and concepts. The appendixes contain a list of workbooks available for professional development, an extensive bibliography, and sample resolutions school boards can use to establish the position and to employ a school business administrator.
