About the SCFF Oversight Committee
The Student Centered Funding Formula Oversight Committee (Oversight Committee) was established in 2019 by budget legislation for the purpose of continuously evaluating and reviewing the implementation of the Student Centered Funding Formula (SCFF). The committee met their legislatively required duties with the submission of their final recommendations report in October 2021. The Committee ended in December 2021.
