Property Management in Local School Systems

by N. L. Engelhardt & Fred Engelhardt - 1927

ADEQUATE consideration should be given property management in local school systems as well as the financial and educational phases of management. A review of current practices shows that there are many school districts in which the managerial procedures indicate a lack of appreciation of the value of cash when once converted into materials. The marked tendency to disregard money value when cash has been converted into goods, the separation of the business management from educational administration, differing practices in placing responsibilities for property on school and municipal authorities, failure to appreciate the problems concerned with property management, and the fundamental distinctions existing in the relationships between property values and educational service as contrasted with corresponding conditions in private enterprise have all contributed toward very limited programs of property management as contrasted with the two other phases of management mentioned above.
