The district team will leverage human capacity, identify actionable strategies and next steps, and develop a data-driven plan that will use budget and resources to support personalized learning in schools.
The Future Ready Schools: Planning with Purpose in Budget and Resources micro-credential is part of the Planning with Purpose stack of the Future Ready Schools micro-credentials. It is designed to support district teams as they build data-driven plans to lead change in their districts using the Future Ready Framework.
An effective budget development and review process is guided by a deep understanding of school finance at the district, state, and federal levels. Funding a digital learning environment requires strategic, short-term, and long-term budgeting that leverages the use of learning-enabling technology and resources to optimize student learning. All budgets at the district and school levels are aligned in order to prioritize student learning and cost-efficiency, with consistent funding streams for both recurring and nonrecurring costs. The district’s financial model includes the metrics and processes to determine Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for developing and sustaining the digital learning environment and to ensure accountability for determining learning Return On Investment (ROI).
