Mr. Hammond distributed information regarding State Foundation funding for the next two fiscal years. The State Foundation formula determined that we will receive no additional funds in Fiscal Year 2013-14 and an additional $4,976 in Fiscal Year 2014-15. He also distributed a historical analysis of State and Federal Foundation funding since Fiscal Year 2002-03 through 2014-15. The analysis shows that the District is receiving over $600,000 less in Fiscal Year 2014-15 than the funds received from the State in Fiscal Year 2002-03. This represents a decline in State funding in excess of 13% over the thirteen fiscal years.
