The Learning Assistance Program: Options to Revise the State Funding Formula

Open Publication PDF

Barbara McLain, Marna Miller - June 2002

The 2001 Legislature directed the Institute to examine options for revising the state's funding formula for the Learning Assistance Program (LAP).  The report examines how state and federal dollars to assist struggling students (through state LAP and federal Title I programs) are allocated and spent by school districts.  It also analyzes the relationship between LAP, Title I, and student performance as measured by state test scores.  Three sample alternative funding formulas for LAP are offered for consideration.
