Editorial Reviews

Darin Drill
"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. "
AASA Journal of Scholarship and Practice
"Practical information that the school principal needs. The book is a resource that school principals should put on their desks, not their bookshelves. Additionally, the university professor may want to consider the book as a reference for students."

"I wish I had had this book before I became a principal for the first time! Yes, we do want to manage funds wisely. But this book goes farther; it teaches new school leaders how to think creatively and it helps them utilize resources to bring about greater equity of learning for all students. They also clearly explain how to create inclusiveness so that all stakeholders become supporters of the school's plan for improvement."
Genie Bingham Linn
"Budgeting is the one area where future and/or new principals feel most insecure! Time and time again we hear our students say they feel like they don't know enough about handling the finances of their school. My students found The Principal's Guide to School Budgeting to be a very clear and practical resource that had information and instructive exercises to ease their anxiety about the task and help them with their jobs."
