Utah's Minimum School Finance Program provides for the funding of several component programs. This document reports on these component programs, describing their characteristics and objectives and displaying graphically the recent statistical data revealing their extensiveness, their costs, and trends in their utilization. The report first presents summaries of the overall program, then breaks down the basic program, special purpose programs, and other programs into their component parts for analysis. The basic program includes support for necessarily existing small schools, handicapped student programs, education for youths in custody, adult education, vocational and technical education, the regular school program, and professional staff. Special purpose optional programs covered under the basic program provide support for instructional media centers, field trips, bilingual education, parenthood programs, and others. Separately funded special purpose programs support transportation of students, experimental programs, utilities and insurance, and other ancillary programs. Appendices include material on special levy programs that are not part of the minimum finance program. Additional appendices provide supporting data used by the Utah Legislature. (PGD)
