Adequate Education Aid

Adequate Education Aid is computed for each city, town and unincorporated place. Not all towns operate schools, but each town pays for the education of the students that are residents of the town. Adequacy Aid is based on the average daily membership (ADM) of resident students.

FY 2013

 

01/02/13 Excel Acrobat Reader Based on a close analysis of the adequacy statute passed in 2011, we have concluded that an adjustment needs to be made to this year’s adequacy payments (FY 2013). Several times in the last six months the DOE reported estimated figures for this year, based on the mistaken understanding that the hold harmless provision covered both years of this biennium. However this is not the case for FY 2013. Though the stabilization grant remains constant at the FY 2012 level for this year, the total grant for each city/town is reduced if the state-wide property tax goes up.
FY 2013 12/20/12 Excel Acrobat Reader

The Cost of an Adequate Education was calculated last year for FY12 (11-12). The same cost will be used for the second year of the State’s biennial budget, FY12. While the Cost of Adequacy and stabilization grant remains constant at the FY 2012 level for this year, the total grant for each city/town is reduced if the state-wide property tax goes up. The Statewide Education Property Tax assessments will change due to using the April 1, 2010 Equalized Valuations without Utilities. RSA 198:38 through 198:42 specify how aid will be calculated and distributed.

See the FY2012 “How aid was determined” for an explanation of how Cost of an Adequate Education aid is calculated.

FY 2011 11/06/09 Adequate Education Aid FY 2011, Excel Adequate Education Aid FY 2011, Acrobat Reader The Cost of an Adequate Education was calculated last year for FY10 (09-10). The same cost will be used for the second year of the State's biennial budget, FY11. While the Cost of Adequacy and Fiscal Capacity Disparity Aid will not change, Statewide Education Property Tax assessments will be slightly different; therefore, transition grants will be slightly different.
