Other Budget Issues

Last Updated: 3/21/2013
Budget Issue: Graduation Requirements (GR) and Behavioral Intervention Plans (BIP) mandates.
Program: K-12 Education Mandates
Finding or Recommendation: Recommend rejecting the Governor’s January proposal to increase the K-12 mandates block grant by $100 million and add GR and BIP mandates to the block grant. For GR mandate, could consider strengthening offset language by linking to future funding increases under the Governor's proposed K-12 funding formula. Recommend adopting the Governor's proposal to modify BIP requirements.
