EDU 745 Fiscal Management in the Educational Environment

3 Credits

Contemporary thinking in educational administration envisions the principal as the instructional leader of a school.  As such, the principal must effectively support the school’s educational program and be able to manage the necessary array of available resources.  With this notion in mind, this course explores fiscal and facility management, as well as instructional resources and resource management plans.  Students examine site-based management models, shared decision making, and their relationships to research driven models of education.  Students also learn to develop and select appropriate assessment instruments, as they focus on the role of the principal in the budget process that includes the development of needs assessments for personnel, instructional materials, supplies and the school plant.  Maintaining an environment conducive to teaching and learning is an integral component of the knowledge and skills that are presented in this course.
