ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to estimate the costs of providing the opportunity for an adequate education to all public school students in New York State. In the simplest of terms, this project will take a significant step toward answering the question, what does it actually cost to provide the resources that each school needs to allow its students to meet the achievement levels specified in the Regents Learning Standards??Ultimately, applying such a cost figure to each school district will serve as a basis for the development of a state funding formula for educational services in local communities.
