TRUTH: Along with the funding changes, the state instituted new accountability requirements. Districts must create plans that describe goals, actions, and spending plans across eight priority areas. These must be addressed for each major student group and for each school site. If districts fail to meet certain goals, the county office of education or state department of education are required to step in and provide support to help them reach their goals. The details of how this will look are still being worked out by the State Board of Education.
