  • School Budgeting in Hard Times: An entirely new approach to school budgeting is required today, one that supports data-driven collaborative decision-making. Program priorities must be set, and system stakeholders must help allocate resources with accountability for results. The purpose of this performance-based seminar is to help participants learn to develop a cost- efficient, but productive budget. Participants will learn how to make critical decisions that trim the budget without sacrificing quality of the educational system.
