Department of Education to host public meeting on school-level financial reporting
The Delaware Department of Education invites the public to a meeting later this month to learn more about school-level financial reporting.
Last fall the department hosted a series of hearings in each county to solicit public input on standardized reporting. Written comment also was accepted. School-level financial reporting launched with the Delaware Report Card in January. This meeting will provide an overview on current reporting and discuss ideas for refinement in the future.
Both the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Senate Bill 172, passed by the 149th General Assembly last year, require the development of a statewide approach to define and report school-level expenditures so school leaders and the public can better compare per-pupil spending across Delaware.
Public meeting 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, October 23 2nd floor Cabinet Room, Townsend Building 401 Federal Street, Dover
