I am very interested in the Finance Committee meeting on Thursday when they discuss the WSS.

I really want to know why seven schools aren't funded in accordance with the WSS. How was it decided that the students at these seven schools didn't need as much funding as other students? What is it about these seven schools that is so radically different from other schools that their funding formula should be completely separate?

One of the schools is The Center School, which, as far as I can tell, operates pretty much like a traditional school with a principal and classroom teachers. Others include South Lake, NOVA, and the S.B.O.C. What is it about the students at these schools that their funding should be significantly less than the funding at "traditional" schools?

And how, exactly, is Cleveland STEM a traditional school when it is an option school, an A.L.E., and uses project-based instruction - just like NOVA. How is Cleveland traditional with full funding and NOVA gets funded with seven fewer staff than it would receive under the WSS?

Yep. I can't wait to hear about this.
