Public School Finance Programs, 1978-79.
Tron, Esther O., Comp.
This compendium describes the programs of state financial aid to school districts that were in effect in the 1978-79 school year. The introductory section of the report is an analysis of the situation and contains summary tables. The report for each state consists of two parts. The first part reports features of the state and local systems of providing financial support for public schools. The second part of a state's report contains the actual description of each state program of financial aid to local school districts and to intermediate districts. Each distribution identified as a separate fund by the state is described in terms of title, legal citation, appropriation (or estimate) for the school year, percent of total state funds allocated, program description, calculation of state and local shares of program cost, and extent of school district participation.
