Online tool shows how proposed performance funding affects AZ schools

A new online tool is designed to help parents, students, teachers and school leaders around Arizona see how newly-proposed performance funding will benefit their local schools.

Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday announced the launch of the online K-12 Performance Funding Calculator.

She says anyone can determine exactly how the performance funding system will financially impact individual school districts and charter schools.

Users who visit the webpage will be prompted to enter the “A-F” score for their district or charter school, followed by a projected 2013 score.

The calculator will then determine based on the district’s level of improvement and achievement the amount of supplemental, per pupil funding it could expect to receive for the next school year.

The online tool can be viewed at http://azgovernor.gov/K-12-PF-Calc.asp
