  • District 49 Student Based Budgeting Highlighted By Independence Institute Education Policy Center

    "SBB extends Colorado’s established system of 'local control' beyond district headquarters to decision-makers closer to individual students," said author Ben DeGrow. "It also bolsters parental choice, by directing more dollars to follow students directly to where they learn. District 49 has developed the state's most robust system of SBB...the low-funded district gradually has unveiled a system that significantly expands the potential to serve individual student needs through greatly empowered local decision-making."
