Florida Value Added Model (VAM) Fiscal Transparency Tool

The Florida Department of Education has released the Florida Value Added Model (VAM), a web-based fiscal transparency tool that identifies public schools and districts with high academic achievement based on the ratio of classroom expenditures to total expenditures. VAM is intended to help taxpayers evaluate the financial efficiency of a school district with other similarly situated school districts.
