Comparison and Analysis of 2017 Legislative Session School Funding Proposals


Throughout the 2017 regular and special legislative sessions, various education funding formulas were proposed or discussed in the Connecticut General Assembly.

As these discussions evolved, the Connecticut School Finance Project routinely produced independent analyses comparing the budgetary impacts and structures of the most recent school finance proposals that emerged from legislative discussions.

This is a collection of those analyses, organized by the date they were released. Each date contains two documents merged into a single file:

  • A document providing state education funding estimates for fiscal year 2018 for each town and choice program under each school funding proposal analyzed
  • A table comparing the components, total costs, and phase-in plans of the different school funding proposals analyzed

Each document compare the various school finance proposals side-by-side and details how each proposal would distribute state education funding.
