Fair Funding Levels

An innovative process called weighted student formula is a fair and equitable way to distribute funds for school budgets. money origamiThe amount of money given to a school will be based on individual student need, not enrollment. This means that students with more needs will receive more resources. For the first time, funding will follow students to whichever schools they attend, equalizing opportunities at the student level.

How weighted student formula works:

  • A specific dollar amount will be allocated to educate each student enrolled.
  • Additional money will be given to educate students with identified characteristics that impact their learning and achievement.

The Committee on Weights, representing educators and community members, will annually recommend the formula for allocating money to public schools based on the educational needs of each student.
