I have been writing and editing a post regarding the school budget for a while now but it seems whenever I feel close to pushing that Publish button, something changes.
So that being said, I feel it is best to wait for the appearance of the School Runs. What’s that, you say?
The school runs list out the amount of State aid doled out to each district according to the formula. Each district run is broken out so you can how the formula works. It isn’t pretty.
You can find last year’s here. The Legislature is currently debating and voting on the bill that will set the formula into motion. I think once the bill is voted on, the runs will be released. Once that happens, the district will have set funding to work with and will be able to present solid scenarios that won’t contain moving target numbers. Until then, I will wait to opine.
