Open Access Graduate Research Paper
School business administrators; Public schools--Business management;
The responsibilities of a school business manager are diverse, complex, dynamic, variable, and vast in scope. Although the role of an individual school business manager is determined and defined by local district policies and customs, the personal philosophies of the business manager, superintendent, and board of education have a tremendous impact on the actual responsibilities. Situations presented in this paper pertain to Iowa public K-12 schools. References made to federal actions, or other outside influences, are made only to gauge and assess the impacts on Iowa K-12 schools. The personal ideas and feelings expressed in this paper are the results of formal course study in preparation for this graduate program, interactions with other students at this level, twelve years of service on a local board of education, experience at a state board level, and participation in many educational conventions and conferences.
