H. Discussion/Action on the Committee on Weights III’s Proposed Weighted Student Formula (Committee on Budget and Fiscal Accountability)

By direction of the Committee, Mr. Toguchi moved that the Board of Education approve the Committee on Weights III’s proposed Weighted Student Formula, as discussed.

Mr. Harimoto stated that the Board did not have adequate time to review and to make a decision on this recommendation. Mr. Harimoto asked what was the approval timeline. In response to Mr. Harimoto, Ms. Knudsen stated that this recommendation would have not passed out of the Committee on Budget and Fiscal Accountability if it had not been ready for a vote by the full Board.

Mr. Harimoto asked the Department if the original timeline included that the Board make a decision in one day. In response to Mr. Harimoto, Dr. Robert Campbell stated that the original timeline was to get the recommendation to the Committee on Budget and Fiscal Accountability.

Mr. Penebacker stated that when Board Leadership met to discuss the agenda, it was suggested that it would be more prudent for the Board to have this item for recommendation at a general business meeting on Oahu.

Mr. Harimoto asked why two options were presented--the sliding scale option and the school specific option--rather than one recommendation. In response to Mr. Harimoto, Dr. Campbell stated that it was the decision of the Committee on Weights III (COW) to present both options.

Ms. Iwamoto asked for clarification on the 4% maximum rate of negative adjustments to schools. In response to Ms. Iwamoto, Dr. Campbell stated that it was a specific decision to try to limit the amount of a one-year adjustment that any school would have to undergo if there was a significant change in the budget.

Ms. Iwamoto asked if there were no 4% negative adjustments, then how would the sliding scale affect schools. In response to Ms. Iwamoto, Dr. Campbell stated that if it was by sliding scale only some schools would lose more than 4% of its budget by the first year.

Ms. Ikeda asked for clarification on page 1 of Attachment C. In response to Ms. Ikeda, Dr. Campbell stated that the net change is from the current school year funding (2005-2006).

Dr. Campbell stated that the sliding scale is an attempt to address small school size and the dilemmas of being able to afford comprehensive programs for students, and at the same time provide as much additional funding for large schools.

Dr. Campbell stated that school specific option is based upon the School Year 2005-2006 funding at a specific school.

Mr. Watanabe stated that the Department should be able to explain how two schools that have an even amount of student enrollment have different budgets.

Dr. Clarke asked for clarification on the Department’s support for the sliding scale. In response to Dr. Clarke, Ms. Hamamoto stated that after reviewing the documents and the recommendation, the Department’s goal is to get as close to 100% as possible for the implementation of the Weighted Student Formula so that there is stability in going forward.

Dr. Clarke asked if the sliding scale option is used, would everything be based specifically on the number of students enrolled at a specific school. In response to Dr. Clarke, Dr. Campbell stated that based on the number of students in a specific school, and given funds for weighted characteristics and an application of a sliding scale, because some schools are smaller and the collective purchasing power of the students, there are fewer funds to put into the pot.

Ms. Ikeda spoke against the motion.

Dr. Ahu Isa stated that considering the budget and timeline that COW III had to work with, they did a great job, but she still has concerns as to how the WSF is related to student achievement. Dr. Ahu Isa stated that if schools had more money then there would be student achievement.

Mr. Harimoto stated that the Board did not have adequate time to review and consider the issues; therefore he speaks against the motion.

Mr. Toguchi spoke in favor of the motion.
The motion carried with Dr. Ahu Isa, Dr. Clarke, Ms. Iwamoto, Ms. Knudsen, Ms. Matsumoto, Mr. Penebacker, Mr. Toguchi, and Mr. Watanabe voting aye. Mr. Harimoto and Ms. Ikeda voted nay. There were no abstentions.
