School Capital Funding: Supplementary State Profiles.
In July 2001, the Tennessee Comptroller's Office of Education Accountability (OEA) began studying methods other states use to finance K-12 capital outlay. The final product of this research is the report "School Capital Funding: Tennessee in a National Context." As part of this research, OEA staff compiled information on state K-12 capital finance methods in all 50 states. This information is included in these supplementary state profiles. Office staff began the research process by developing a contact list of K-12 education capital finance specialists in each state. On July 30, 2001, staff sent each state a copy of a State School Construction Aid Survey. Upon receipt of a state's survey response, analysts constructed a state profile using information contained therein, information from state Web sites, and additional outside sources. Finally,OEA staff sent each state's profile to that state's respondent for verification. In several cases, researchers also asked respondents to elaborate on one or more aspects of state programs. The profiles contain information on contact person, credit enhancement programs, loan programs, annual capital funding programs, additional methods, state oversight, and legal action. (EV)
