What is Chapter 70 Funding?
The State of Massachusetts offsets a portion of the cost of public schools under Chapter 70. This funding is listed as a revenue item in HWRSD’s budget.
What’s the link between iPad/PARCC/Common Core and Chapter 70 funding?
There have been vague implications that the iPad/PARCC/Common Core restructuring is mandated by state law, and that somehow funding for the district would be threatened if HWRSD opted out of Common Core/PARCC.
This is not true.
