A legislative committee looking at the school finance act Wednesday announced they’ve picked the company that will help take the deep dive into how the state pays for public schools. Cross and Joftus, based in Maryland, will take on the heavy lifting over the next year to figure out the solutions to Colorado’s strange mix of finance and school funding policy. The company will handle data and analysis, research, and taking input from a variety of stakeholders. The General Assembly set aside $383,000 in 2017-18 and 2018-19 to pay for the consultant as well as other expenses.
