PowerPoint PresentationOur collection of charts is intended to illuminate recent trends in the various funding sources for public schools: federal, state and supplemental levies. Key findings include:

  • Supplemental levies increased in real terms (adjusted for inflation and student growth) and grew relative to state funding
  • The number of districts using supplemental levies has risen
  • Federal school funding increased during the recession and then tapered off, starting in FY2013
  • Total state funding increased significantly in FY2016, but remains below FY2007 levels
  • General Fund revenue also remains below FY2007 levels, in inflation-adjusted per capita terms
