|Budget Issue:||Flexibility options available to school districts in the budget year|
|Program:||Finance and Flexibility|
|Finding or Recommendation:||Recommend providing several additional flexibility options to school districts in 2011-12. Specifically, recommend removing strings tied to K-3 Class Size Reduction, Home-to-School Transportation, and after school programs; linking flex funding to average daily attendance; eliminating certain mandated education activities; easing restrictions on contracting out for noninstructional services; and easing restrictions on pay rates and priority for substitute teaching positions.|
