4 FY 2009 Federal Programs By Appropriation Economically Disadvantaged (Title I)$737 M Special Education (IDEA)$598 M Child Nutrition$525 M Teacher/Principal Training (Title II)$165 M Safe & Drug Free Schools (Title IV)$ 70 M Career & Technical$ 60 M Bilingual(Title III)$ 40 M Innovation (Title V)$ 14 M Others$ 40 M Total$2,249 M

5 Local Funding (2006 EAV & Tax Rates) Property Taxes$ 13,110 M Debt Service $1,285 M Education $8,974 M Operations $1,528 M Transportation $ 358 M All Others $ 965 M CPPRT$ 794 M Total$ 13,904 M

6 Property Tax System Equalized Assessed Valuation – EAV Tax Rates for Various Purposes District Request for Property Tax Revenue – Levy Payment to District for Property Taxes – Extension Operating Tax Rate X Total EAV = Extension Maximum that a district can receive (no bonds)

7 Exemptions Non-PTELL Districts Loss of local property tax revenue at the district tax rate A gain in General State Aid 2 – 3 years down the road at the formula rate PTELL Districts No local loss if tax rate below maximum Estimated that GSA would be minimally impacted Note: The 7% cap in Cook County has a different effect on GSA

8 PTELL Property Tax Extension Limitation Law Referred to as Tax Caps Limits the Amount the Extension can Increase over the Previous Year Linked to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) Legislated for Collar Counties(1991) Cook County (1994) Limiting Rate X Total EAV = Extension Maximum that a district can receive (no bonds)

9 Comparison Non-PTELL Operating Tax Rate X Total EAV = Money to District Operating Tax Rate is Fixed, EAV Varies so Money to District Adjusts PTELL Limiting Rate X Total EAV = Money to District Money to District is Fixed (increase limited to CPI) EAV Varies so the Limiting Rate Adjusts In Both Cases We are Talking About the Maximum

10 PTELL Highlights Fiscal Year Counties Subject to PTELL (38%) 461 (53%) Districts 78% of the ADA 63 Counties NOT Subject to PTELL (62%) 9 - Failed Referendum 54 – No Vote 412 (47%) Districts 22% of the ADA Double Whammy Adjustment Cost - $805.5M

11 Fiscal Year 2007 Total State Revenues by Source (All Funds - $s in Millions) Income Taxes$11, % Sales Taxes 7, Federal Aid 12, Road Taxes 2, State Lottery (gross) All Other 13, Total$48, %

14 State Funding General State Aid – provide unrestricted grants-in-aid to Illinois school districts in an equitable manner. Foundation level formula and poverty grant formula. The objective of categorical programs is to reimburse districts for the expense associated with providing services to or for targeted populations.

15 FY 2009 State Funding GRF (60 + programs) General State Aid / HH$4,616 M Mandated Categoricals$1,782 M Other $ 988 M Non-GRF School Construction$ 0 M School Infrastructure$ 5 M Driver Education$ 18 M Others$ 12 M Total$7,421 M

16 Mandated Categoricals Lunch/Breakfast$ 26.3 M Regular Orphanage$ 11.6 M SE Extraordinary$331.1 M SE Orphanage$101.8 M SE Personnel$426.1 M SE Private Tuition$151.6 M SE Summer School$ 11.0 M SE Transportation$383.3 M Regular Transportation$339.5 M Total $1,782.3 M

17 Other Major Categoricals Early Childhood $380.3 M Reading Improvement $ 76.1 M Bilingual Education$ 75.6 M Career & Technical Education$ 38.6 M Extended Learning Opportunities $ 22.2 M (Summer Bridges) Standards, Assessment and Accountability $ 36.3 M Alternative Learning$ 18.5 M

18 General State Aid Foundation Formula (Foundation Level - Local Resources per Student) xStudents

19 Provisions of GSA Formula Fixed Foundation Levels thru FY 2009 $4,225 $4,325 $4,425 $4,560 $4,560 $4,810 $4,964 $5,164 $5,334 $5,734 $5,959 No Continuing Appropriation (eliminated in FY 2003) Unweighted ADA used as Pupil Count Greater of prior year or prior 3 year average Calculation Rates 3.00% % % Alternate Formula (7% to 5%), Flat Grant ($218) Separate Poverty Formula

20 Effect of EAV Increase to GSA For every $1 Million increase to the EAV used to calculate GSA for a foundation district: Unit Districts Lose $30,000 in GSA Elementary Districts Lose $23,000 in GSA High School Districts Lose $10,500 in GSA They may have gained in local property taxes if their local rate is higher than the formula rate The EAV is not used for GSA until 2 years after the tax extension (2006 EAV used in 2007 tax extension is used for FY 2009 GSA)

21 Available Local Resources (ALR) ALR = (GSAEAV x Rate + CPPRT) / ADA where Rate = 2.30% for elementary 1.05% for high school 3.00% for unit Local Ratio A L R / FLEVEL

22 Three Formulas Foundation (Less than.93) (FLEVEL - ALR) x ADA Alternate Method (.93 up to 1.75) 7% to 5% of FLEVEL x ADA Flat Grant (1.75 and greater) $218 x ADA

23 Complicating Issues Cost of the Double Whammy Adjustment FY $46M FY $806M (over 1600%) Actual Tax Rates Falling Below Formula Rates Complexity of PTELL in Overlap Counties Applying Audited ADAs when 3 Year Avg has been Utilized Effects of TIFs, Enterprise Zones, Property Tax Exemptions, etc. & PTELL vs Non-PTELL

24 Supplemental GSA Poverty Grant Formula Low Income Concentration Level 3 Year Average of DHS Count divided by ADA 0% to 15%: $ 355 x Low Income Count > 15% : ( x squared concentration) x Low Income Count

25 Poverty Grant ( ) Poverty Category # ADA Count Grant No Grant 74 5, Flat Grant ,325 45,631 $16,988,865 > 15% 640 1,335, ,117 $768,434,713 Total 944 1,908, ,748 $785,423,578

30 Why is the Distribution of General State Aid Changing Regionally?

31 EAV Highlights 45.9% Increase 53.5% Growth in Cook/Collar (79% of EAV) 22.4% Growth in Downstate (21% of EAV) 14 Counties (>35% increase) 9 Counties Increased over 50% 20 Downstate Counties Decreased

32 ADA Highlights 2.1% Increase 2.8% Increase in Cook/Collar (66% ADA) 10.9% Increase in Collar Counties (Cook County decreased by 2.5%) 0.8% Increase Downstate (34% ADA) 76 Counties Decreased 8 Counties Decreased 10% or more

33 Per Pupil Statistics By District Type

34 Spending per Pupil by Type (Data Not Included for 2 Non-Operating Highs)

35 EAV per Pupil by Type 2005 EAV

36 Education Funding Advisory Board

37 Statutory Requirements for EFAB EFAB shall make recommendations … for the foundation level …and for the supplemental general state aid grant level … for districts with high concentrations of children from poverty. The recommended foundation level shall be based on a methodology which incorporates the basic education expenditures of low- spending schools exhibiting high academic performance.

38 EFAB Reports Initial report in January 2001 (FY02) $135 increase to FLEVEL, utilize max of 3-yr avg or prior year ADA, lower poverty threshold to 15%, continuing appropriation Interim report in January 2002 (FY03) $120 increase to FLEVEL, new poverty count and formula, continuing appropriation Comprehensive report in October 2002 (FY04) $1,105 increase to FLEVEL, new poverty count and formula, reinstate continuing appropriation. (Property tax abatement and income tax increase to fund formula changes) Report of May 2005 $1,441 increase to FLEVEL, apply the Employment Cost Index (ECI) to the Poverty Grant Formula, reinstate the Continuing Appropriation No Report in January 2007

39 Adequacy Models Economic Cost Function Attempts to determine the amount needed per pupil for the desired level of performance Multiple Regression Model Complicated Statistical Model No state was using this model (2006 research) Successful School District Identifies school districts at the desired performance level Calculates a weighted average from the expenditure level Outliers are eliminated so data could be skewed Professional Consensus A group of educational professionals identify the components of a prototype school Once the components are identified they are then costed out Can lead to a maximum rather than adequate level Combination of Methods Uses the best of the 3 models School level not district

40 EFAB Methodology Contracted with Augenblick & Meyer for a replicable methodology to produce an adequate funding level. Based on the Successful School District Model First used in the October 2002 report Requested foundation level was $5,665 Criteria Used: Two Most Current Years of Test Data Low-Income Percentage Minimum % Meeting Standards – 67% Use the Per Capita Tuition charge McMahon Index used as Cost Adjustment Updated for the May 2005 Report - $6,405
