|Budget Issue:||Graduation Requirements (GR) and Behavioral Intervention Plans (BIP) mandates.|
|Program:||K-12 Education Mandates|
|Finding or Recommendation:||Recommend rejecting the Governor’s January proposal to increase the K-12 mandates block grant by $100 million and add GR and BIP mandates to the block grant. For GR mandate, could consider strengthening offset language by linking to future funding increases under the Governor's proposed K-12 funding formula. Recommend adopting the Governor's proposal to modify BIP requirements.|
