Abstract : The rising cost of public education and the resulting pressures for higher local property tax rates have caused the financial management of public schools to come under increased scrutiny. The study applies planning-programming-budgeting systems (PPBS) to school district financial management. A program structure is described which relates all resource-consuming activities to objectives and which includes estimating relationships that model the future economic environment of the district. The study applies PPBS concepts to a school district in Dayton, Ohio. A prototype PPBS is tested and exercised on a Monte-Carlo computer simulation model of the Northmont economic environment.
