State Aid Work Group
The Board of Regents adopts a State Aid proposal annually that includes funding recommendations to the Governor and Legislature reflecting their policy goals In recent years the proposal has incorporated a major restructuring of operating aid into a Foundation Formula based on the cost of educating students in successful schools. The proposal outlines the financial assistance needed to provide an adequate basic education, so that all students attain proficiency on the State’s learning standards and to close the achievement gap for students with the greatest educational need and the least resources.
