Johns, Thomas L., Comp.
This publication describes State funds transmitted to local agencies for the support of elementary and secondary education. Each distribution identified as a separate fund by the State is described in terms of (1) title, (2) legal citation, (3) appropriation for the school year or estimate, (4) percentage of total State funds transmitted, (5) expenditure restrictions, (6) calculation of district allowance, (7) State and local shares of the allowance, (8) district requirements for participation, (9) extent of participation, and (10) distribution schedule. In addition, provisions for school revenue raising and indebtedness at the local level and State budget and audit requirements for school districts are reported. Although technical in nature and intended primarily for persons familiar with the field of school finance, the publication can also be used by lay persons to gain a general understanding of the mechanics of State school finance programs.
