John, your assertion that, "for the most part, budgeting is driven simply by head count," certainly is far from true in St. Vrain. Nor has it been true for a long time.

St. Vrain uses a failurist model, where low performing schools get bonus money at the expense of the competent and excellent. Furthermore, this comment refers just to general fund teacher funding; the low-performing schools also get enormous sums of money for English-language instruction, free lunches and so on.
