The Resource Allocation Model (RAM) was developed to ensure a fair, efficient and transparent allocation of the state public education budget for every school.

Every school receives a School Budget Allocation Report (SBAR) in October that shows the full school funding allocation for the following year, including staffing and operational costs. The report assists schools to develop a budget and allocate funding to deliver on the strategic directions in their Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP). It includes each school's allocations for the seven loadings of the RAM.
