A Program Budgeting Cost Model for School District Planning,
RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
Many school districts have adopted some of the accounting mechanics of a planning, programming and budgeting system PPB, but in the majority of cases the program planning aspect of PPB has not been a feature of the effort. Of the many hypotheses concerning why there has been a dearth of analysis-based decisionmaking, one is that the information system is not yielding the type of information needed for analysis. The paper reports on the development and construction of an education program cost model that is designed to serve as that tool in filling the data gap in program cost information.
