Further Changes to Education Subsidies
INFORMATIONAL LETTER: 94
Below please find the link to a new spreadsheet showing subsidy information for all units based on the latest addition of $5 million in General Purpose Aid for Local Schools (GPA), proposed by Governor John Baldacci and approved in concept this week by the Legislature’s Appropriations Committee. Combined with the previous $20 million restoration, the budget under consideration by the Legislature now includes $25 million more for GPA than it did on February 2, 2010, when the original spreadsheet was made available. These subsidy amounts for the FY2010-11 year do not represent final action of the 124th Legislature.
Please note these changes are for the FY2010-11 year and supersede two previous notices of subsidy figures for FY2010-11. No new changes are proposed in education funding for the current fiscal year, FY2009-10.
You can find the spreadsheet on the EPS website:

We anticipate mailing revised ED-279 subsidy printouts by early next week.
