Finding Answers to Questions about School Finance
Leadership, v36 n5 p12-13 May-Jun 2007
This article describes the California School Finance (CASF) Web site, which explains the complexities of school funding in California. The Web site,, was developed by EdSource, an organization that has been trusted in California for 30 years to explain school finance in simple, jargon-free language. The CASF site maintains that tradition and is a valuable tool school administrators can use to explain school finance to their boards, staff and other constituents. A special feature of the site draws on EdSource's three decades of work in explaining school finance, providing a unique glimpse into the history and the laws and court cases underlying the current system. The Web site is structured to enable the reader to get a "big picture" view in the first layer of pages, and then dig deeper into the secondary level pages for more detailed explanations of the topic, information that might change more often, or to find other resources with more specific information.
