State and Local Contribution to Teacher Retirement FY 2013-14

State and local contribution to teacher retirement by school unit

The FY2013-14 budget proposal contains an initiative that would include teacher retirement normal costs in each school unit’s EPS allocation and an increase in GPA of $14.5 million statewide to support those new retirement costs. One question that has been asked is: how does the $14.5 million in additional GPA flow through the funding formula to individual units to support those new costs? The spreadsheet linked at the bottom of this message provides that detail.
