Essentials of Illinois School Finance is an effective reference for school business managers, budget makers, and anyone who needs to understand school finance. From the peculiarities of property taxes and state funding to the formulas for projecting enrollments and staffing budgets, this book covers just about everything and is considered the "primer" for newly-elected school board members, as well as students of educational administration.

The Seventh Edition has been updated with the most current information that the author could find, including state budget data for Fiscal Year 2017 and recent numbers from various agencies of state and federal governments. The book also reflects the budget pressures and uncertainty that confronted state officials, boards of education, and school leaders as the 2016-2017 school year got underway.

Similar to earlier editions, the first part deals with revenue — where schools get it, how they maximize it, protect it, and plan for it. The second half addresses expenditures — how schools budget and minimize expenses. A special chapter at the end examines the many standards for school finance and business management that need to be established by action of the local governing board.  

The author is an instructor of literacy, leadership, and development at Northeastern Illinois University. Dr. Fritts is a frequent presenter at conferences and workshops and has 35 years’ experience in the public schools as a teacher and administrator.
