Student-Based Budgeting (SBB) goes by many names, including Student-Based Allocations (SBA), Weighted Student Funding (WSF)Fair Student Funding (FSF), or Student-Centered Funding (SCF). Regardless of its name, SBB is a funding system whereby dollars follow students based on student need. Or, more specifically, it describes any district funding model that: allocates dollars instead of staff or materials, is based on the number of students, and uses objective and measurable student characteristics as weights.

Student-Based Budgeting (SBB) allocates dollars to schools based on the number of enrolled students, where each student receives a funding "weight" based on need. This model can allow districts to increase equity, transparency, and flexibility.
