K-12 School Construction Funding Formula Transparency Study and K-12 School Enrollment Projections Study

In response to legislative direction, we worked with OSPI to assess the School Construction Assistance Program (SCAP). Our work included a review of the SCAP funding formula and its inputs and an evaluation of the accuracy and reliability of the current method used for forecasting school district enrollment. We also described current state and local school construction funding sources, surveyed other states on their school construction funding programs and process, and assessed recent examples of school construction bond information provided to voters.
