SBB (also known as weighted student funding or student-centered funding) has become popular as a way for districts to allocate scarce resources equitably. SBB can have far-reaching consequences for schools and students – when done strategically. To drive student success, SBB must be part of a system strategy to empower and support principals to design their schools to meet students’ needs- i.e., Strategic School Design. Education Resource Strategies’ new SBB Toolkit helps all stakeholders—including academics, school support, and HR—understand how strategic implementation of SBB addresses equity, transparency, and resource flexibility.
