Planning: Its Relationship to Fiscal Allocations in Budgeting for a School District.
Boyles, Lyle E.
Evidence exists indicating that significant planning for elementary and secondary education has been largely absent. Recently educators have placed more emphasis on short-range and long-range planning as they have become more aware of the benefits of such planning to educational organizations. The areas receiving attention are the increasing size of educational institutions, the expansion of educational responsibilities, changing educational aspirations, increasing educational costs, the civil rights movement, and rapid technological change. Budgeting is the controlling segment of any planning system. This paper presents 13 principles that form a foundation for effective planning/budgeting systems. To ensure that those involved in planning are in agreement on the terms used, a terminology list with definitions of all terms listed is also provided. Included with the paper are two attachments--one on basic language use for decision making, the other a basic program-development model. (MD)
