Culled from tough business and life lessons, it is the first-ever reference handbook for educational leaders.

Fiscal Fitness for School Administrators: How to Stretch Resources and Do Even More with Less by Robert D Ramsey( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This guide offers school principals suggestions for economizing, cost containment, fund raising, and general ideas for maintaining a positive bottom line. The book is divided into nine chapters. Chapter 1 examines ways to cut costs without cutting essential programs and services. The chapter emphasizes the abstract notion that fiscal fitness is an attitude, but it also offers practical measures, such as a step-by-step budget-reduction process, to help school leaders control costs. Chapter 2 looks at ways to accomplish more with less staff by using part-time personnel and volunteers, whereas chapter 3 discusses ways to optimize dollars spent on programs. The next section underscores the importance of involving everyone in fiscal responsibility through partnerships and collaboration and by appealing to the community. Chapter 5 suggests ways to find, raise, and attract money for programs, and chapter 6 outlines ways for school leaders to make the most of their time by efficient scheduling, by minimizing interruptions, and by knowing when to say no. The next chapter explores ways to use technology to save time and money, and chapter 8 relates nine success stories of school districts that achieved fiscal fitness. The last chapter lists aphorisms and resources regarding responsible fiscal schools. (Rjm)
