As part of its 2003-05 work plan, JLARC initiated this study of school spending and performance assessment within the K-12 system.  This study describes: (1) district and school budgeting processes and expenditures; (2) the types of performance assessments districts and schools use to understand student performance; (3) data that the state collects on districts and schools; and (4) alternative approaches in other states and school districts to budgeting and reporting school-level expenditures.  The study concludes with issues for the Legislature to consider before beginning any effort to change district budgeting or reporting practices.
