On August 31, 2017, the Evidence-Based Funding for Student Success Act, or
Public Act 100-0465 became law. Five previous grant programs are combined into a single grant program and distributed as evidence-based funding. Those grant programs are General State Aid, Special Education – Personnel, Special Education – Funding for Children Requiring Special Education Services, Special Education – Summer School and English Learner Education. In this new system, districts receive the same receipts from each of those five programs again in FY 2018 as a hold harmless provision.
Explanatory documents and final FY 18 calculations, listing tier assignment and percentage of adequacy, are listed below.
