"This manual is an easy-to-use, practical guide that all superintendents in any size or type of school district will find extremely helpful as they deal with complex school district revenue shortfalls. These timely, realistic case studies of actual school funding problems faced by superintendents illustrate well the six-step, district-wide process recommended."---Thomas A. Kersten, assistant professor of school finance, Educational Leadership Department, Roosevelt University; former superintendent Skokie Public Schools, Illinois "School financing operations are challenging across the country. This manual contains wisdom for the leadership that is required to manage school resources and to improve student achievement---at the same time balancing fiscal resources and accountability. As a chief financial officer, the advice on allocating resources during tough economic times is invaluable and will be used to assist our district in accomplishing our educational mission."---Guy G. Bellville, chief financial officer, Cherry Creek Schools, Colorado "These two authors are eminently qualified to give practical advice to school leaders. The recommendations come from a wealth of experience. I urge you to read these pages carefully and give credence to what the authors are saying. I have learned much from them and continue to marvel at their wisdom. Your time invested will be well rewarded."---Ivan W. Fitzwater, professor emeritus, Trinity University; AASA Distinguished Professor of the National Academy of School Executives "I have been directly involved with school district finance for the past fourteen years. I have experienced both `years of plenty' and `years of drought.' The information contained in this manual provides the tools for a budget reduction to be conducted in an atmosphere of cooperation and trust. I was privileged to review a draft of this manual, and I used that information to make the budget decisions that have allowed our district to remain solvent. I highly recommend this manual, and I believe it should be a part of any superintendent's resource library."---Scott L. Crane, superintendent, Blackfoot School District 55, Idaho
