An introduction to Minnesota's educational finance system as of school year 1984-85, this compilation describes various aid programs, defines relevant terms, and shows how funds are allocated. The first section defines the following: the Foundation Aid Program, the state's basic school financing mechanism, which includes state and local funds with an equalizing factor and seven special allowances; other revenue programs, including referendum levies, summer school aid, and eight categorical aids; and variables, concepts, and procedures used to allocate funds. The remainder of the report illustrates with simple examples the eligibility criteria and funding formulae for foundation, categorical, and tax relief aids; compares the 1984-85 foundation program with the programs for 1983-84 and 1985-86; and summarizes the revenues available to school districts in 1984-85 and 1983-84.
