Resource Allocation in High Schools. Final Report.
Hartman, William T.
This study investigated the resource allocation process--how school administrators obtain the proper resources to operate their schools, distribute the available resources among the various school programs appropriately, and manage resources for effective educational results--in four high schools during the 1984-85 school year. Information was gathered from each school through observations, interviews, documentary material, and discussions with district personnel. On the basis of these data, a description of each school's resource allocation process was developed, and the feasible alternative approaches that administrators took in each component of the resource allocation process were identified and compiled into a three-part overall description of the process, covering acquisition, distribution, and management of resources, respectively. Quantitative analyses were also conducted to examine and compare the choices and results for each school. Numerous figures and data tables are contained in the text, and four appendixes provide comparisons of data from each individual school with the four-school average. (TE)
