Best Practices in Allocation Models

A school district’s instructional priorities should be reflected in the budget for individual school sites. Therefore, the method used to allocate funds to school sites must be designed in a way that helps a district make the most student learning gains with its available funding. This document reviews best practices in designing an allocation model using the experiences of Beaverton School District, in Oregon, to illustrate the concepts. Beaverton’s actual allocation model is available here.
