Program Budgeting as an Analytical Tool for School District Planning.
A discussion of planning, programming, and budgeting, with emphasis on the system-analytical features in district planning. It is this side of program budgeting--providing operational and perhaps quantifiable objectives for each of the district programs--which is most valuable. The role of the analyst is to serve as a catalyst in the decisionmaking process, to provide the informational bridge between the identification of the problem and the delineation of potential solutions, with the choice being made by the decisionmaker responsible for policy determination. 6 pp.
