In Kentucky, Picus Odden and Associates conducted a number of studies over a period of two and a half years. In 2001, we conducted a major assessment of the equity of Kentucky’s school funding system. Following that work – which concluded that a decade after reform, substantial improvements in school finance equity have been achieved in Kentucky – we prepared an assessment of approaches to school finance adequacy. In a second contract completed in 2003, Picus Odden and Associates conducted two separate costing studies for Kentucky, one using the professional judgment approach. (requested by the state) and the other relying on our Evidence-Based approach.
