Resource Management

Enter Module

Part of effective leadership is making sure that district resources are allocated deliberately in ways that produce effective classroom instruction and improved student learning.

Resources include facilities, transportation services, energy, curriculum materials, library materials, and so on. The most important resources, however, are the personnel that a district employs, including teachers, administrators, related services providers, and support services providers. School districts spend large proportions of their budgets to pay the salaries of these personnel—80 to 85% according to the American Association of School Administrators (Ellerson, 2010). Additional funds in most districts also support efforts to build the capacity of these personnel.

This module aligns with Ohio’s Leadership Development Framework in the following areas:

  • Area 5: Resource Management Process
