This school dollar survey was launched in response to inquiries from the United Jewish Appeal Federation and individual school representatives. As the costs for school operations increase each year, those responsible for funding the educational programs become more conscious of the allocation of resources and the effectiveness of educational opportunities. The survey separates the different types of Jewish school (day, nursery and supplementary) and deals with each category separately. Because of the large number of supplementary schools and the wide difference in size, a further categorization was made in terms of large, medium and small schools. The material found in this survey is a reflection of the reality of school expenditures in the greater Washington area. It can be useful to individual schools and to the broader community leadership in terms of future planning for Jewish education.
