Pilot would test more flexible school funding Matthew Albright, The News Journal
School leaders say that system doesn’t leave them much flexibility to adjust their staffs to meet different needs. If a principal thinks his school could be best served by adding another teacher rather than a custodian, for example, the rigid rules of unit count might prevent that from being done.
Gov. Jack Markell has proposed in his budget for next year a pilot program that would let up to five school districts receive 10 percent of their total unit value in cash. The districts would still need to meet all the requirements for things like appropriate services for special needs, and the right number of school nurses. But they would not be bound by the stricter unit count rules.
