Maine's Essential Programs and Services Education Funding Act, 20-A MRS §§15670-15696
Last updated: April 2020

Introduction

"Essential Programs and Services are defined as the programs and resources that are essential for students to have an equitable opportunity to achieve Maine's Learning Results. The EPS formula determines both the state and local share of funding needed for each School Administrative Unit (SAU) to have Essential Programs and Services" (see the Maine Department of Education's website Essential Programs and Services (EPS) Funding). In 2003, after several years of research, Maine enacted 20-A MRS §§15670-15687 to implement the EPS funding model.

This legislative history includes legislation and appropriations leading up to the implementation of EPS. Thereafter, it includes legislation that amends Title 20-A MRS Chapter 606-B.
