Hawaii State Government Document:

Excerpt: Last month we looked at a new way of distributing funds to Hawaii?s public schools called Weighted Student Funding. It is part of a package of school reforms passed by last year?s legislature. Another reform in the package gives principals control over 70% of the Department of Education?s operating budget (excluding debt servicing and capital improvements). The intent of this provision is to place a greater number of decisions and a much higher percentage of money directly in the hands of individual principals and their schools. In other words, the Reinventing Education Act of 2004 (Act 51) seeks to replace a top-down management system with a bottom-up decision-making model where a principal and his or her advisory council decide how money should be spent at their own school to benefit their own students. When authority, resources and accountability are directly linked, then every dollar spent should yield the maximum educational results.
