Limited research has examined the impact of weighted student funding policy on urban student achievement. This equity-based model allocates dollars to schools instead of staff. Existing studies suggest correlations between this model and improved outcomes like test scores and graduation rates. This research will fill the gap by exploring a grassroots approach to policy creation and implementation to enhance student achievement. Research data on districts adopting this approach show positive correlations between model implementation and quantitative factors like test scores, graduation rates, and college acceptance across districts. This research can guide districts considering the shift towards equity in education.
