  • Model of Governor Malloy's Proposed ECS Formula for the FY 2018-19 Biennium

    This model details the calculations and town-by-town outcomes of Governor Dannel Malloy's proposed changes to the Education Cost Sharing formula and the proposed new Special Education Grant. The model also allows users to create their own iteration of the formula using the variables in the governor's proposal, and compare it to the governor's proposal in his budget as well as ECS funding for FY'17.

  • Town-by-Town Comparison of Students Identified as Low-income Using FRPL Eligibility vs. Students Identified as Low-income Using HUSKY A Eligibility

    In his budget proposal released on January 8, Governor Dannel Malloy included several changes to Connecticut's school finance system. Among the proposed changes was one to change the metric used to represent low-income students in the Education Cost Sharing (ECS) formula from eligibility for free and reduced price lunch to the more accurate metric of participation in HUSKY A (Connecticut’s children’s Medicaid program). To better understand what this proposed change would mean for school districts and their students, this spreadsheet provides a town-by-town comparison of the number of students (enrolled in October 2015) who were eligible for free and reduced price lunch, and therefore identified as low-income for the purposes of the ECS formula, versus the number of students (as of October 2015) who were eligible for HUSKY A and would have been identified as low-income for the purposes of the ECS formula if HUSKY A eligibility was the metric used to identify low-income students.

  • Education Cost Sharing (ECS) Funding for FY 2016-17 w/ Rescissions

    This data shows the FY 2016-17 ECS funding for each local school district as well as what the funding would be if 1) the state used the ECS formula and 2) the formula was funded at 100%. The data also shows which districts are currently overfunded or underfunded, and by how much. Data also includes rescissions made by the governor's office.

  • Comparison Between Net Current Expenditures per Pupil (NCEP) for 2014-15 and 2015-16

    An analysis of how the net current expenditures per pupil (NCEP) for 2014-15 compare to the NCEP data for 2015-16. The NCEP data are the State of Connecticut's official per-pupil spending amounts for local public school districts. The analysis also includes a look at how average daily membership (ADM) has changed for districts between 2014-15 and 2015-16.

  • Expenditures for Connecticut Schools of Choice, 2014-15

    This file contains data on expenditures for schools of choice (i.e. charter schools, magnet schools, or the Connecticut Technical High School System) for the 2014-15 school year.

  • Education Cost Sharing (ECS) Funding for FY 2015-16 w/ Rescissions

    This data shows the FY 2015-16 ECS funding for each local school district as well as what the funding would be if 1) the state used the ECS formula and 2) the formula was funded at 100%. The data also shows which districts are currently overfunded or underfunded, and by how much. Data also includes rescissions made by the governor's office.
