Drs. Sorenson and Goldsmith have carefully updated their outstanding book to include the latest information in a lively, engaging format. Their illustrative stories and case studies help new leaders learn how to apply knowledge and skills to bring about improvements in schools so that all learners can succeed. I highly recommend this guide which all educational leaders will want to keep as a ready reference.

Perhaps the most powerful element of this edition is the humanistic approach to budgeting which addresses issues such as equity, cultural responsiveness, and diversity. As school demographics and needs change, school administrators must understand their stakeholder’s evolving fiscal requisites. It also addresses the current political climate and technologies that are now a permanent part of leading schools.

I strongly recommend this excellent and comprehensive guide from the novice principal to the most experienced school leader. This text is vision and values driven. The authors use case studies to illustrate the importance of both the leader’s values as well as those of all the stakeholders, to create a school community marked by ethics, integrity, fairness, and equity. They are especially sensitive to issues in contemporary diverse communities.

The Principal′s Guide to School Budgeting, 4th edition is an invaluable resource for campus principals and school leaders.  Building on established budgeting procedures, the authors move from theoretical principles into practical applications. The case studies are especially beneficial in assisting novice administrators in solving the everyday challenges of developing a school budget.  

The Fourth Edition of the Principal′s Guide to School Budgeting, offers busy principals discussions of the realities of budget constraints and cuts, thought-provoking discussion questions, rich case studies, checklists, the connection of school budgets to vision and planning, a message of accountability, and a discussion on school budget audits.

The school budget is where school leaders will likely struggle and spend the most time. This bible will be the school leader’s best friend. When the fiscal environment is shaky, this book will provide the necessary assurance regarding best practices. It includes great case studies, wisdom, and resources.

This book serves as a desk top reference regarding the ins and outs of school budgets. It is a must read for school administrators and those working towards their administration degree. Each chapter offers a plethora of ideas, structures, and information about budgets for a school administrator.
