This book represents a marriage of research and successful practice, presenting a comprehensive planning model for school leaders preparing for and conducting school finance elections. Information presented emphasizes systems and strategies rather than specific campaign tactics. Avoiding a myopic focus on tactics allows school leaders to elevate their thinking to a more comprehensive and long-range vision of election planning. Each of the chapters elaborates on one of the ten elements in the authors' comprehensive planning model. Use of this model has reaped success in all types of school districts from New Jersey to California, and the authors aim to bring readers success at the ballot box as well.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Every school leader needs to build community connections and at no time are these relations under greater scrutiny than leading a school finance election. A citizenry with increased expectations for schools in an era of turbulent financial uncertainty means that school funding is increasingly in jeopardy. This book is the perfect blend of solid research proven strategies combined with practical tactics garnered from the decades of experience the two authors have invested in assisting hundreds of school districts to acquire their necessary funding through success at the polls. It is the only textbook that I would ever use in my University of Minnesota school finance elections class, and it has provided me with practical, research proven strategies in designing successful bond and levy referendums in the school districts that I served a principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent. -- Ted Blaesing, Ph.D., retired superintendent and educational consultant, Cape Coral, FL
School Finance Elections served as the blueprint for our district's last successful campaign. This second edition offers very helpful techniques for addressing specific target audiences through a variety of media channels; as well as ways to handle organized opposition. This book will serve as our primary resource as we plan for future campaigns. -- Rolf W. Parsons, member of the White Bear Lake school board and the Minnesota School Boards Association Board of Directors
