FY2019 Traditional Public School Payment Report Calculator

School Funding Payment Report (SFPR) Calculator Assumptions: Calculator for Local, City, and Exempted Village School Districts

Version 5/4/2018

The link below will allow you to download an Excel spreadsheet containing a calculator for the Fiscal Year 2019 School Funding Payment Report (SFPR). The purpose of this tool is to generate estimates of state foundation funding by allowing the user to enter the user’s own estimates of student enrollment, including typical students, preschool special education students and open enrollment students. The foundation aid is calculated using formula established in Am. Sub. HB 49, the FY18-19 budget bill.
 

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER

Please note that any projections generated by the calculators and resulting simulations are estimates only. All schools should exercise caution when using these tools to make personnel, budget and planning decisions for the FY19 school year. Schools will be able to use the calculators to project estimated FY19 payments under various scenarios. The calculators and simulations are not guarantees of FY19 funding levels as actual enrollment data will be different.  

The calculators and simulations will be based on the most current data used in April FY18 payments. It is important to note the April payments use FY18 data and FY17 report card data. The default data in the calculators also will be based on FY18 data and FY17 report card data. Actual FY19 payments will be based on FY19 data and will change throughout FY19 as data is updated, corrected, etc.
There may be differences between the FY19 simulations and default FY19 calculator calculations. The differences are due to rounding errors produced by Excel and the simulation program. The simulations and calculators use the same formulas, factors and assumptions. Some of these variables can be adjusted in the calculator (see list below) but others cannot (such as special education transportation funding).
