					Additional Dollars Outside the Formula
Administration officials explain that when comparing education funding versus the rest of the State, one should include the dollars appropriated outside the formula.
The following tables contain an estimate of State programs that received additional dollars sent directly to K-12 schools. These figures are close approximations.

Declining Enrollment (DE)
Administration officials often cite the decline in the number of students as the primary driver in K-12 State Aid (SA) dropping from nearly 39% of the budget to less
than 30% recommended for FY12. The following tables estimate that amount by comparing the change in fall enrollment from the base year to the state's share of the
per pupil amount. The FY98 (the base year) fall enrollment was 132,780.
                      FY99        FY00       FY01       FY02       FY03        FY04        FY05        FY06        FY07        FY08        FY09        FY10       FY11         FY12

DE Amount = change in fall enrollment from FY98 multiplied by the Per Pupil Amt, that product multiplied by the % of the formula that is funded by state aid (%SA).

Additional Property Tax Relief
School officials counter the above with the fact that property tax relief is funded through the formula, and the additional property tax relief that has occurred
since FY98 is artificially increasing the state aid amount. In FY98, the State's share of the funding formula was 47.8%. That figure has increased to approximately
55.1% in FY12. While that figure is a cost to the state, it is not additional funding for schools as maximum school levies were decreased to offset the additional
state dollars associated with increasing from 47.8% to 55.1%. To illustrate this, think of a girl who received an allowance of $100 per month from her parents with 48%
of that coming from her dad and 52% coming from her mom. One day the dad tells the girl that he is now going to pay 55% of the monthly allowance while the mom
will pay 45%. The girl simply says, "OK" and continues to receive $100 per month in allowance. If a year later she tells her dad that she would like an increase in her
allowance because she hasn't had one and he says, "What are you talking about? I gave you a $7 increase just 12 months ago.", what do you think her
response will be?
Add'l Prop            FY99        FY00       FY01       FY02       FY03        FY04        FY05        FY06        FY07        FY08        FY09        FY10       FY11         FY12
Tax Relief        5,107,008   3,257,346 19,552,531 29,606,426 17,839,946 22,460,851 25,286,313 24,036,577 24,674,580 40,032,314 41,008,046 42,809,058 43,218,742          33,314,472

Additional Property Tax Relief = %SA (from above) minus 47.8% (the FY98 state share of the state aid formula), that difference multiplied by the fall enrollment (also
from above), that product multiplied by the per pupil amount (also from the table above). This is a close approximation as the formula includes a small school
allocation, the formula has been funded 1 year in arrears, the formula now has a declining enrollment provision, etc.
