Office of Fiscal Analysis Fact Sheet: ECS Formula Beginning in Fiscal Year 2019

This fact sheet from the Connecticut General Assembly's Office of Fiscal Analysis details the revised Education Cost Sharing formula, which was passed in October 2017 as part of the bipartisan biennial budget and began being implemented in fiscal year 2019. The ECS formula is the formula the state legislature has established to distribute approximately $2 billion in state education funding to local public school districts. Under the new formula, a district’s full funding is to be phased in over 10 years.
