A 50 State Survey of School Finance Policies 2007

map of the US

This compendium provides state-by-state descriptions of public elementary and secondary finance policies and programs in effect during the 2006-07 school year. The report consists of two volumes. In Volume I are state-by-state descriptions across all school finance components for each state. Volume II contains separate sections for select provisions across all states, including finance formulae and cost differentials for students and districts. Tax and expenditure information is also included in this part along with 50-state data on average per pupil funding, teacher’s salaries and percentage shares of total funds, drawn from Estimates and Ranking of Education Statistics (NEA, 2007).

The information contained in this report is based on surveys that were completed by each State Department of Education in response to a request for descriptions of school finance programs and provisions. Thus, all information in these two volumes has been provided by the chief state superintendent or finance officer for each state, or their designee, with the exception of four states. In these states, university professors or agency personnel provided the information. Once information was compiled from each state, it was posted on the internet for verification and correction by each State Department of Education.
