Changes to school funding in Indiana have been substantial in the last few years, and when coupled with the economic recession experienced by Indiana and the nation, school corporations are faced with new and sometimes challenging financial management decisions. This Education Policy Brief will examine the recent changes implemented to Indiana's school funding system, with emphasis on the provisions of the two-year state budget adopted by the legislature via House Enrolled Act 1001-2009. Variance in per-pupil funding by the locale type of the school corporations will also be explored. Finally, the issues of school funding equity and adequacy will be revisited from previous reports issued by the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy. (Contains 3 figures, 4 tables, 6 endnotes and 6 web resources.)
