How will the funds be distributed?
The initiative also plans for equitable distribution of the revenue raised. Unless and until the legislature creates a more equitable School Finance Formula, this initiative would:
- Increase base funding for all students
- Provide for full-day kindergarten and increase the amount of revenue going to early childhood education funding
- Expand the definition of “at-risk” students to count free and reduced lunch kids
- Significantly increase the amount of funds passing from the state to local districts for: English Language Learners, Special Education, and Gifted & Talented students
