Every school district is funded differently. School Boards and Administrators who manage the resources of each district are best served by knowing how the State views and allocates their needs and resources. The workshop will feature former superintendents Carl Dietz and Matt Fisher, two school finance experts and Colby Coash, NASB Associate Executive/Government Relations Director. Learning how the State funds education and YOUR district makes you a better advocate and spokesperson for your district. Participants will learn:
- How “Needs” are calculated.
- How “Resources”, both State and Local are calculated.
- A historical perspective of how school funding has changed.
- The Legislative “levers” that are manipulated to achieve school funding outcomes.
- Past and current legislative initiatives that could impact school funding.
Participants will be provided with data from their OWN district to add context to the presentation.This workshop is suited for all board members and administrators wanting to learn more about how the State funding process works and how it impacts their district.
WHY ARE WE ADDING THESE EVENTS?
The Legislature is conducting an interim study to examine school finance. As part of this study, the committee is requesting to speak with board members to get their perspective on how the State is or is not funding their district. We want to ensure board members have an opportunity to learn more about how legislative decisions impact the State Aid formula so they can better advocate for their district.
