State Website Aims at Parents, Students

Tool focuses on performance-based funding for K-12

A new online tool is designed to help parents, students, teachers and school leaders around Arizona see how newly proposed performance funding will benefit their schools.

Gov. Jan Brewer's office announced in a press release the launch of the online K-12 Performance Funding Calculator.

Officials said anyone can determine exactly how the performance-funding system will financially affect individual school districts and charter schools.

Users who visit the webpage will be prompted to enter the "A-F" score for their district or charter school, followed by a projected 2013 score.

The calculator will then determine based on the district's level of improvement and achievement the amount of supplemental, per pupil funding it could expect to receive for the next school year.
