Let’s try to apply our knowledge of variable costing and review a sample budget for a charter school. This budget is prepared assuming three levels of student enrollment (66, 100 and 120). Revenue and expenses projections are shown in the budget. Operating assumptions are shown in “Schedule A”.
The first requirement of this case relates to the planning function of a budget. Comment on the following relating to the charter school budget:
Is this a static or flexible budget? What is total revenue (excluding grants) per student? What are total expenses per student? Do all expenses seem necessary? Is this school viable? How many students does the school need to break even (show your calculations with analysis and state your assumptions for break-even)?(Note:For break even analysis – Ignore revenue received as “Grants” and “Startup Costs” (Schedule A). What are the general benefits of preparing this budget? Discuss how this budget is likely to be used for the control function.
