School Funding Transparency

Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, Education Law §3614 – which was passed by the Legislature and became law as Chapter 59 of the Laws of 2018 – requires school districts to “annually submit to the commissioner [of the State Education Department] and the director of the budget … a detailed statement of the total funding allocation for each school in the district for the upcoming school budget year” in a “form developed by the director of the budget, in consultation with the commissioner [of the State Education Department].”
