Funding Formula Working Group

The Funding Formula Working Group will examine whether the state education aid formula is working as intended with the intent to provide an initial report in early 2016.

This working group, established by executive order, is part of a regular review of Rhode Island's education funding formula that was signed into law five years ago to allocate state aid to public schools based on student enrollment, student poverty levels, and community wealth.

collective effort they dedicated to improving the educational conditions for
