This includes payments on voter-approved bonds for large-scale projects. The amount of bonds a district can seek is capped at 10% of the total valuation of the real property located in a district. The fund can also be used to pay for other district debts like those imposed by a court through a judgment.

Moving from exclusionary policies to greater inclusion in the general classroom has significantly changed how these programs operate. Special education designations not only impact the kinds of resources available to students but also the amount of state funding a school district receives.
