School District Budgeting.
Hartman, William T.
This book is devoted exclusively to the budgeting process in school districts, unlike the more common generic budgeting texts. As such, it allows an in-depth treatment of both conceptual and practical aspects of budgeting in a single volume. By default, school business officials have had to rely on the state education accounting manual as their primary text, supplemented by state department of education memoranda and data, school district budget documents and related materials, individual chapters from books on school business management, and journal articles. This book remedies this situation and fulfills two purposes: to be used as a textbook and as a reference book. As the former, it is intended for use in graduate courses in educational administration for aspiring administrators--particularly those courses in business administration, fiscal management, and school finance. It can also be used as a text in professional development for practicing administrators. As a reference book, it can serve as a source of new ideas, good practices, and useful examples for school administrators. Chapter topics include budget and budgeting, organization for budgeting, accounting as the language of budgeting, building the budget, budget adjustments, marketing the budget, managing the budget, and use of microcomputer models in budgeting. Contains lists of tables and figures. (DFR)
