School funding still up in the air

State Rep. Ron Amstutz (R), chair of the House Finance Committee, said the process of identifying new school funding model will likely extend into 2013.  The “evidence-based model” in use the last few years was eliminated, but no model was proposed to replace it.  While we know our state allocation for this year, we have no good idea of how it was calculated – or how our next year’s allocation will be figured.  This makes it extremely difficult to plan for the future, especially in light of a continually shrinking pool at the state level.
