The Arizona MOWR Initiative: Funding Processes An important part of the planning year work The Arizona MOWR Initiative: Funding Processes An important part of the planning year work is to flesh out and further define the funding models. The idea is to use the current funding stream more flexibly and effectively. The MOWR Legislation outlines a few key funding processes. • Participating high schools continue to receive ADM for students who move on to approved postsecondary study (until that student would otherwise have graduated at the end of grade 12). The retained ADM is used to provide student and teacher incentives, and to offset costs associated with the program. • The school reimburses the community college district for the amount of operating full-time student equivalency monies that the district would be entitled to receive. • If student instruction for full-time career and technical education programs (for participating MOWR students) is provided by JTEDs, then the ADM for that pupil will be 1. 25. 14
