The Department of Education has released preliminary district-level subsidy sheets (EDU-279s) for the 2016-2017 school year and a statewide spreadsheet that shows what all districts will be receiving based on a prediction of flat-funding of General Purpose Aid despite increases in the cost of education.
While that flat-funding was forecast in the biennial budget passed last year, it still has to be voted on by the full Legislature. A bill to do that has not yet been introduced.
The statewide spreadsheet shows winners and losers under the formula. It also shows that the required local mill rate, if state aid remains as predicted, will go from 8.23 to 8.44.
