Summary

School Business Administration develops a rationale for how school business administration functions and describes that function in current practice. This text contends that the function of school business administration is to contribute to instructional effectiveness by assisting key decision-makers in using financial resources in order to maximize the achievement of educational goals. It views school business administration as a collaborative enterprise and takes a positive, proactive approach to the contemporary problems and issues facing education today. Throughout, the book describes and applies new management concepts to school business administration and continually links concepts to practice using real world examples.
