Reallocating Resources To Support School Improvement. Newsletter
Deich, Sharon G.
Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement
The process of allocating and reallocating resources is an ongoing one, with changes made regularly in the ways resources are deployed to meet changing demands. In many cases, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about reallocation is cutting a position or eliminating a program. However, a growing number of district and school leaders are adopting a more strategic approach to reallocating resources; one that more closely aligns annual plans and student performance goals with budgets. Strategies that have been used in successful reform efforts to facilitate the implementation, expansion, or sustainment of a wide range of school improvements include: (1) Beginning with an inventory of existing resources; (2) Looking deeper into school budgets to understand resource allocation patterns; and (3) Seeking flexibility to allocate resources in new ways.
