Christensen, Douglas D.
This manual covers the fundamentals of managing student activities, including program management, budget guidelines and cost-cutting methods, and ways to gain support for the student activities program. General advice is provided in the opening section on initial assessment of program options, setting priorities, and resource allocation. The second section provides a three-part scheme for planning a student activities budget: an educational plan, a cost plan, and a revenue plan. The third section concerns public relations, including communication planning, writing of news articles, and disseminating research information. The fourth section provides a list of ideas used by school districts across the country to reduce student activity costs. Last is a note on the future of student activities. An appendix provides examples of forms useful in planning and budgeting student activities. (TE)
