Alternative School Finance Plans for Oregon: A Staff Report.
Oregon State Legislature, Salem. Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity.; Oregon School Finance Project, Salem.
This preliminary report summarizes much of the work and findings of the research staff of the Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity of the Oregon Legislature. The research staff's task was to analyze Oregon's current school finance system and its various alternatives and to develop a computer simulation for predicting the impact of alternative school finance plans on all school districts in Oregon. Section 1 of the report briefly describes the current Oregon school finance system and some of its major problems. Section 2 outlines the criteria that should be met by any changes to the present system. Section 3 describes three alternative school finance plans that are consistent with the criteria discussed in section 2. Each plan is described, its strengths and weaknesses are discussed, and its impacts are analyzed for 38 Oregon school districts. Section 4 discusses a variety of policy issues and staff recommendations that accompany consideration of school finance reform. (Author/JG)
