33 DOE supports equitable educational opportunity for all students Weighted Student Formula (WSF) is a way to allocate funds to schools based on student educational needs.
34 Underlying Assumptions for Equity: 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.
35 SY Data Indicates: Schools with higher % of economically disadvantaged students, ESL students, and Transient students have lower % of proficient readers Very small schools can cost up to 40% more per student K-2 class ratios Isolated schools Multi-track schools cost more in some operational areas
36 Percent of Students with Special Needs 2006 Totals may not be exactly 100% due to rounding Over 50% of our students require more resources!

44 Statewide Responsibilities –Strategic Planning –Student Achievement Standards Development –Budget Consolidation –Teacher Certification –Hawaii State Assessments –Policy Development –Internal Audit –Compliance with US DOE and State Regulations –Federal Reporting Requirements –Inter-governmental relationship management
The DOE Budget has increased primarily due to the following: The pass-through of fringe benefits and debt service Services to special needs students Transfer of specific programs
46 A significant portion of these pass-through costs came from Budget and Finance
47 Special Education also expanded in compliance with the Felix Consent Decree
48 Most recently, other programs like Facilities Development and Repair & Maintenance were transferred
49 Fringe Benefits, Debt Service and Special Education Account for $1 Billion of the Increase in DOE Budget Over the Past 30 Years This is almost 50% of our Operating Budget!
