8 DOE supports fair allocations of budgets to schools for all students The Weighted Student Formula (WSF) is a way to allocate funds to schools based on student educational needs… WSF does not address adequacy of funding (it’s not the size of the pie [limited resources], but how to slice the pie fairly).
9 What do we mean by Fair? 1.Schools with similar students should get a similar amount of funds. 2.Schools with students who have a harder time becoming proficient should get more funds to support their efforts.
10 Percent of Students with Special Needs 2006 Totals may not be exactly 100% due to rounding Over 50% of our students require more resources!
