Abstract

Wyoming's new Cost-Based Block Grant Model for school finance is intended to ensure that each public school district in the state receives adequate funding to offer students equal access to a 'proper' education. This paper reviews the proposed block grant system and examines the rationale for introducing adjustments among districts to reflect differences in the costs of providing vocational education. It also provides detail on the various factors that contribute to the higher costs of vocational education and offers some guidance on how Wyoming might proceed with vocational education cost adjustments
