Weighted Student Formula
The Weighted Student Formula (WSF) is a fair and equitable way to distribute funds for school budgets. A baseline amount per student is set, with additional funding ("weights") aligned with different student needs and characteristics. Funding follows students to the schools they attend, equalizing opportunities at the student level. Weights are set by the Committee on Weights, comprised of teachers, administrators and community members.
