Adequacy

Revamp the Education Cost Sharing (ECS) formula and related grants to reflect the real cost of meeting the learning needs of all students and preparing them for success in college or advanced training, the modern workforce, and productive citizenship.

Equity

Ensure that adequate school funding is distributed equitably based on student learning needs, fair measures of town wealth, and fidelity to the tax equalization principles underlying the ECS.

Property Tax Relief

Shift the lion’s share of funding for school operations away from property taxes and onto the State, lessening the heavy dependence on this regressive tax structure.
