California BOE Approves New Rules For District Funding

The Sacramento (CA) Bee (1/17, Kalb, Lambert) reports that yesterday, the California Board of Education unanimously “approved emergency rules” that will govern “a historic overhaul of school spending designed to direct money to the state’s neediest students.” The new formula “proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown and approved by legislators” would award funds according to a school district’s “share of low-income students, English-language learners and foster children.”
