This unique budgetary survival guide will enhance your instructional, technical, and managerial skills not only as the school’s leader but also as the school’s visionary, planning coordinator, and budgeting manager.
"I highly recommend this book to budget committees, site-based groups, educational administration professors, and new administrators. It is a great book to start out with for budgeting and connecting vision to the process. There are many examples provided that can be used right now in schools during a budgeting cycle."
