reimbursements based on current data and methods under traditional procedures, which the case study districts are now using.

Third, we will conduct a workshop with school district representatives to gain a better understanding of the issues of interest to schools and school districts relative to Provision 4. We will encourage school district representatives to discuss potential errors and costs associated with both the current approaches and Provision 4. Case study district representatives will be key participants in the workshop.

Fourth, where direct information is not available, we will attempt to perform calculations to identify theoretical minima and maxima for potential errors and construct simulations to identify specific conditions that are more likely to be sensitive to errors and to determine the range of possible errors under these conditions relative to the uncertainties that exist in current methods.
