This no-nonsense handbook covers every aspect of fiscal fitness for today's schools, from cutting costs without cutting essential programs and accomplishing as much as before—or more!—with less staff to running a low-cost, no-frills activity program.

Based on years of front-line experience, this guide includes tips on:

  • The role of principals in hard times
  • Cost containment
  • Downsizing
  • Creative staffing
  • How to get the biggest bang for your program buck
  • How to get everyone involved in fiscal fitness
  • How to find, raise, and attract money in hard times
  • How to make the most of time—the resource that keeps on ticking

There isn't a principal anywhere who doesn't have questions about how do more with less. This is the book with the answers!
