Description

Step 1

Identify a school district administrator, school administrator (i.e., principal) or business manager or a childcare facility director or owner to interview for this assignment. Use the administrator as a resource to assist you in completing the case study assignment.

Case Study Scenario

You are the superintendent of a school district or director of a childcare center which has 75% of next year's expenditures already in reserve as you begin the current school year. Unfortunately, your school district/center is spending substantially more than the revenues you receive. This deficit is projected to grow dramatically over the next few years as expenditures escalate and revenues remain relatively flat. If you don't begin to respond soon, the district/center will face a major financial crisis in the not-too-distant future. However, the reserve will provide time to address the problem without resorting to crisis management.

As part of your interview, please minimally include the following questions:

  1. From your experience, what are the key factors that could have contributed to the district's/center’s deficit situation?
  2. What strategies would you employ to maximize this school district's/center’s revenues?
  3. What strategies would you employ to minimize this district's/center’s expenditures?
  4. How would you prioritize the various proposed actions?
  5. What potential issues would the administration have to consider as they address the budget deficit problem?
  6. What political, psychological, and ethical implications would the district administration have to weigh?

Assignment Requirements

When writing your response for this assignment, please include the following sections:

Section 1: Description of the person interviewed including personal background and experience with school/center financial planning (1-2 paragraphs)

Section 2: Summary of the content of the interview (2-4 summary sentences for each question)

Section 3: Your personal reflection on both the case study scenario and answers from the administrator you interviewed (i.e., do you agree or disagree with their answers, what would you do differently from what they said, etc.)

This assignment is due by 11:59 PM Friday, September 24. Please refer to the rubric in the syllabus when completing this assignment.

Section One: Personal Background
Notably, the principal of Mary Hill pre-school maintains high standards of
professionalism, integrity, and ethics in any working area within the school. The principal has
multiple employees that help him in the day-to-day activities of the school. The principal has a
college and master's degree in education. He wanted to be a teacher all his life, and luckily
enough, he became one of the youngest principals in Mary Hill pre-school. Being the youngest
principal in the region, he faces many challenges, especially when dealing with other older
colleagues in the institution. In this regard, it is essential to note that the principal attained his
position due to his merits and not favoritism. The principal of Mary Hill pre-school is
charismatic, honest, industrious, well-organized, and a natural-born leader in matters of
education and learning activities. However, the principal lacks financial background when it
comes to running a business. His resume indicates that he attended a business school that might
help him learn the basic skills of business revenues and shortcomings. Arguably, it is essential to
note that the principal of Mary Hill pre-school only has experience in education and not finance.
With five years of experience as an intern in Mary Hill before becoming the principal, he ought
to have attended one or two classes on finance and business planning. Thus, this paper provides a
comprehensive analysis of education finance, emphasizing the principal's interview.
