The purpose of the Department's Integration Revenue Replacement Task Force was to develop recommendations for repurposing integration revenue funds to create and sustain opportunities for improved educational outcomes that narrow and close the academic achievement gap.
A 12-member panel charged with evaluating the use of state integration aid for K-12 schools began meeting on November 15, 2011. The Task Force was appointed jointly by the Commissioner, who named 6 members, and by the House and Senate, which name 3 members each.
Recommendations were made to the Legislature in a report submitted February 15, 2012. Materials from the Task Force meetings and the final report and recommendations are posted below.
