$15.6M would be an increase, "anyway" (aka not due to the changes recommened by Gov. Baker);
Gov's planned changes adds $5.3M to that.
There's funding still around for impact aid (that can be used next year) but it hasn't been released by the state.
(that's a 3% increase)
Processing all the principals' requests would total $21M (additionally)...which we don't have. "So we have some work to do."
(that's the Promise Act)
(This is Gov Baker's bill)
"on special education, they're virtually the same"
"the problem is the recommendation of the Foundation Budget Review Commission is flawed"
the sped spending gap is $35M; will only give us $1.8M (in every bill)
Gov's comes in at $4600+$181/pupil
Promise Act comes in at $8251/pupil for Worcester
"The Governor's using 50%; the Senate's using 100%" (referring back to the recommendations of #FBRC)
