These easy-to-use instructions will help leaders organize and play School Budget Hold'em as a group. The Facilitator's Guide provides three different approaches for playing the game based on your goals and the time you have to devote to playing.
- A cabinet exercise to build common understanding of the opportunities and possibilities
- A budget exercise to involve the broader district team to build buy-in and to make the best strategic tradeoff decisions
- A board or public stakeholder exercise to generate understanding of the cost and tradeoffs inherent in choosing certain investment options
