NEW DATA!!!

Dr. Rick Timbs has added new Data that you can utilize here from the website. We have analyzed the Governor’s Executive Budget Proposal’s impact on school districts and have suggestions for improvements- critically needed improvements.

It must be clear that their continued advocacy effort hinge, in part, on these data. We continue to press for the legislators to convince the Governor that every penny of the $250 million of Performance Grant monies be reallocated for distribution to fiscally distressed low and average wealth school districts across the state in an equitable formula.
