LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The long-anticipated Weighted Funding Formula bill was formally introduced in front of lawmakers Tuesday night. The marathon 7-hour hearing provided answers as to how K-12 education will be funded starting in 2021.
As a reboot of the 50-plus-year-old Nevada Plan, the so-called Weighted Funding Formula will essentially be a repeal-and-replace of the way our schools are funded, beginning in earnest in two years.
There is a lot of skepticism surrounding the plan that was introduced just two weeks before the legislative session ended, so the hearing sparked a lot of questions.
