The authors describe a budget reduction process developed in a district facing a 24% loss in revenue. Initiated by the superintendent, the process resulted in strong support from both staff and community members, including all eight bargaining units.  Collaborative leadership was the cornerstone of the process. The process was repeated in another state with no bargaining units, but strong employee associations. A detailed description, with specific worksheets for superintendents and professors to use, can be found in the manual entitled: Survival in a Down Economy: A Budget Reduction Process for Superintendents, published by Rowan & Littlefield in partnership with the American Association of School Administrators.
