The Act requires schools to spend 65% of all funds on direct classroom expenditures. Direct classroom expenditures are defined as expenditures for activities related to student-teacher interaction including, but not limited to, teacher compensation; educational materials and supplies; classroom-related activities such as field trips, physical education, music, and arts; and tuition paid to out-of-state school districts and private institutions for special needs students. School districts not meeting the 65% requirement must increase their direct classroom expenditures by a minimum of two percent per fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter until they reach the 65% level. The Act also provides one-year renewable achievement or hardship waivers for schools not in compliance with the 65% spending requirement.
