MISSOURIS FOUNDATION FORMULA & JCPS PRELIMINARY BUDGET SHIFTING MONEY AROUND THE STATE
Current Reality Current formula implemented in 2006-07 Designed to be phased in over 7 years – Fully funded 2012-13 Requires about $120m each year to be phased in Shortfall has existed in each of the last 3 years, and will next year Stimulus funds softened some of the blow ($153m in FY13) Every year the formula becomes more expensive o Increasing Costs + Flat Appropriations = More Withholdings DESE is currently applying a straight reduction to every district, because there is no legislative guidance to the contrary o Legislation Prohibits Adjusting SAT During Phase-In
Funding Formula Weighted Average Daily Attendance (WADA) X State Adequacy Target (SAT)-Set to increase in FY13 & FY14 X Dollar Value Modifier (DVM) - This is decreasing in FY13 Local Effort based on 2005 Assessed Valuation = Formula funding if +, but if – then hold harmless Also HH if payment per WADA < 2005 payment per WADA
Many Changes in FY13 Final Year of Phase In – $100 Million State Wide Increase in Cost – $1.1 Million New Funding JCPS Recalculation of DVM – $29 Million State Wide Decrease in Cost – $200,000 Lost Funding for JCPS JCPS DVM Going From 1.038 to 1.034. Recalculation of WADA Thresholds – No Official Calculation on State Impact but Will Decrease the Cost – $300,000 Lost Funding for JCPS
WADA Threshold Changes 2011-122012-13Difference Total ADA (Includes SS)8,0978,14750 F&R Lunch Threshold %32.0%38.8% F&R Lunch Threshold #2,5913,161 F&RL Students4,225 0 F&RL WADA408266-142 LEP Threshold %0.9%1.8% LEP Threshold #73147 LEP Students195 LEP WADA7329-44 Total WADA85788442-136 Even though we gained 50 students our WADA count goes down by 136. We will be paid on the prior year. JCPS misses out on $300,000 in funding for those 50 students, if the thresholds did not change
Many Changes in FY13-Huge SAT Increase Recalculate Every 2 Years – Original SAT Calculation = $6,117 – 1 st SAT Recalculation = $6,117 Actually went down but law wont allow reduction – 2 nd SAT Recalculation = $6,131 (0.23% Increase) – 3 rd SAT Recalculation = $6,716 (9.54% Increase) $6,423 in FY13 – Phase in ½ of the increase Removed 5% Throttle on growth in 2009 in anticipation of increased gaming money from the passage of Prop A.
Many Changes in FY13-Huge SAT Increase In FY13 the SAT goes from $6,131 to $6,423, which increases the cost of the formula by $292 million. In FY14 the SAT goes from $6,423 to $6,716, which increases the cost of the formula by $238 million. These Increases Make the Formula About $700 Million Underfunded.
Many Changes in FY13-But Not Funding While there are changes that increase the cost of the formula by nearly $400 Million in FY13 Initial FY13 Budget shows $5 Million Increase – 0.1% Increase – Record Appropriation With this many changes in the formula and no new money, there are massive shifts of money from district to district all over the state.
As If That Wasnt Bad Enough DESE is currently applying a straight reduction to every district, because there is no legislative guidance to the contrary – During the Phase-In, SAT Adjustments are Prohibited When the formula is fully phased-in in FY13 The state adequacy target may be adjusted to accommodate available appropriations – Only place in current legislation that addresses how to deal with a short fall. – Does May mean Shall?
Current Options–If No Legislation Passes Currently All Districts Receiving About 94% Funding. Option 1 – Continue to Prorate All Districts – Proration drops to 86.39% – JCPS GAINS $1.9 Million (+12.2%) Option 2 – Adjust SAT – SAT Drops from $6,423 to $5,749 – JCPS LOSES $1.3 Million (-8.5%) – Hold Harmless Districts Receive 100% Funding. Roughly a 6% Increase
We Saw This Coming Years Ago FY 13 MAY vs. SHALL
Proposed Legislative Fix SB 454 – Sen. Pearce – All Districts Share in the Underfunding – HH Districts Get 1/2 the Reduction as Formula Dist. Formula Proration – 84.8% HH Proration – 92.4% – JCPS Gains $1.6 Million (10.2%)
Proposed Legislative Fix HB 1043 – Rep Thompson - Original – All Districts Share in the Underfunding – HH Districts Get 1/3 the Reduction as Formula Dist. Formula Proration – 84.1% HH Proration – 94.7% – JCPS Gains $1.25 Million (8.2%)
Concerns with Current Proposals Both HB1043 and SB 454 Treat JCPS Very Well If total school funding is flat and we get more money, it is coming at the expense of another district. – SB Shifts About $35 Million in FY13 – HB Shifts About $27 Million in FY13
Concerns with Current Proposals SAT goes up again in FY14 which increases the cost of the formula another $238 Million Not expecting school funding to grow that much Shifting money around the state again If total school funding is flat and we get more money, it is coming at the expense of another district. – SB Shifts About $25 Million in FY14 – HB Shifts About $19 Million in FY14
Concerns With Current Proposals Baring any other guidance except the statement that DESE may adjust the State Adequacy Target next year, most believe that is the position DESE will take. – Remember this is the only option where JCPS loses money, but is the most likely to occur. Under this scenario HH districts go to 100% funding. Under either of the fix bills HH districts continue to participate in the underfunding and actually get much less money due to huge increase in SAT. Why would they allow this legislation to pass?
Benefits of Current Proposal Targets for future funding – Goals to get to full funding – Without targets it is too easy to shortchange education funding – Original bills have unrealistic funding targets Smoothing of DVM calculation – 3 year average – Will reduce wild swings in funding
HB 1043 Amended – Rep Thompson – All Districts Share in the Underfunding – HH Districts Get 1/3 the Reduction as Formula Dist. Formula Proration – 88.9% HH Proration – 96.3% – Reinstate 5% Throttle on SAT growth Reduces Massive Shift of $ – JCPS Gains $600,000(4.0%) – Chance of support from Formula and HH districts – Realistic Funding Targets Proposed Legislative Fix
