Program Budgetary Needs
March 10, 2021
Rationale: Element 3.1 - Candidates understand and can monitor and evaluate school management and operational systems.
Program Budgetary Needs Assessment exhibits this standard by demonstrating how a well created needs assessment can provide insight to where your resources are targeted, who is benefiting from them, and if they are meeting expected needs. It provided insight into a budget that I monitor as Director of Instructional Technology for my current school district. The budget is allocated to funding digital subscriptions for the district that support student learning. The artifact below, Program Leader Interview, is the follow up to the assessment created here.
Program Leader Interview

Rationale: Element 3.1 - Candidates understand and can monitor and evaluate school management and operational systems. Element 3.2 - Candidates understand and can efficiently use human, fiscal, and technological resources to manage school operations
Program Leader Interview exhibits Element 3.1 by demonstrating how a needs assessment allowed me to understand and evaluate the current usage, effectiveness, and needs of the district as it relates to digital subscriptions that support student learning. It also exhibits Element 3.2 by demonstrating methods and procedures for managing digital subscriptions and analyzing a school’s budget and financial status. The summary and reflection reveals the key findings of the needs assessment and the strain unexpected expenses, like a pandemic, can have on a budget. This artifact is a follow up to the assessment presented above in Program Budgetary Needs Assessment.
