The School Funding Workgroup is a volunteer group of legislators and educators who convened for the purpose of conducting a thorough review of the State’s methods for determining its educational resources and distribution. Participating practitioners are providing recommendations for their improvement and modernization.
These meetings will provide BASA, OASBO, and OSBA members background on how and why the idea for the workgroup originated, the goals of the project and details of its preliminary recommendations. Presenters at these meetings will seek input and answer questions, but no specific district funding numbers will be used. The workgroup will use the input from the meetings to finalize recommendations and then create simulations. Representatives Bob Cupp and John Patterson have these dates on their calendars and are making every effort to attend.
