Florida VAM (Value Added Model) and Fiscal Transparency Tool
Posted 6/25/20

The Florida Department of Education has released the Florida Value Added Model (VAM) and Fiscal Transparency Tool, a web-based tool that enables taxpayers to evaluate both the impact that teachers have on the learning growth of their students and the financial efficiency of a school or school district with other similarly situated schools and school districts. The tool identifies public schools and districts with high academic achievement based on the ratio of classroom instruction expenditures to total expenditures.

 

The financial efficiency data can be viewed or downloaded by selecting “2018-19 Financial Transparency” from either the landing page or the help section located in the upper right-hand corner of the VAM tool. This web-based tool is best viewed with the latest version of Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome; not all web browsers are supported.
