Funding Formula Analyses

Throughout the 2017 Connecticut regular and special legislative sessions, the Connecticut School Finance Project will be providing independent, nonpartisan analyses of every proposed school funding formula put before the General Assembly. Each analysis details the proposed formula's components and characteristics and highlights how the formula accounts for students with higher learning needs (ex. low-income students, English Learners, students with disabilities).

Additionally, each analysis provides a list of estimated state education funding per pupil under the proposed formula. Finally, every analysis examines the formula based on a series of equity metrics.

Below is a list of school funding formulas that have been officially proposed during the 2017 regular and special legislative sessions. Click on a bill number to open the analysis of the bill's proposed funding formula. For questions about an analysis, or for more information, please contact us at
