health insurance 201314
Health Insurance – 2013
  • Although the funding for Health Insurance will be consistent from FY12 to FY13, each system’s expenditures will vary depending upon several factors. These factors include seniority of staffing and participation %.
  • Based on these factors, your expenditures could increase or decrease in FY13 when compared to FY12.
health insurance 201315

  • Plans are for the allotment sheets to better reflect actual expenditures by incorporating the PMPM premium and removing the fixed percent of payroll.

  • Non-Certified PMPM Rate will increase with July 2012 payroll to $446.20 per month per employee covered.
  • We do not have the PMPM Rate for Certified employees at this time. Expected to hear something from DCH next week.

equalization 2013
Equalization – 2013
  • HB 824 – Revised Equalization Formula
    • Proposal of Education Finance Study Commission
  • Amount of money needed to fully fund
    • Old Formula - $832 million
    • Revised Formula - $493 million
  • Amount being funded remains the same at $436,158,587.
equalization 201326
Equalization – 2013
  • Results of Changing Formula
    • No longer using the 75th percentile district’s digest dollars per weighted FTE (wealth calculation) as the base for determining the equalization funds
    • The base for determining the equalization funding is now calculated by first removing the top 5% (9 districts) and bottom 5% (9 districts) as ranked on the wealth calculation and calculating the average wealth for the remaining 162 districts.
equalization 201327
Equalization – 2013
  • Results of Changing Formula (continued)
    • For FY13, it took the base wealth value from the 46th ranked district to around the 56th ranked district.
    • The results of this change caused
      • 10 districts to lose all equalization funding
      • 47 districts to lose some equalization funding
      • 77 districts (the poorest districts as determined by the wealth calculation) to receive additional funding
equalization 201328
Equalization – 2013
  • Results of Changing Formula (continued)
    • To offset the losses of equalization for the 57 districts that lost some if not all of their equalization, $5 million was funded in FY12’s MIDTERM Budget and will be prorated out to these districts.
    • These amounts will be calculated and distributed to each of these districts before the end of FY12.
equalization 201329
Equalization – 2013

Some adjustments made based on changes to adjusted equalized digest as published by the Department of Audit in the Sales Ratio Study

Changes made due to a correction in the reporting of the Tax Digest from the Local Tax Commissioner to the Department of Revenue

Can have a SIGNIFICANT impact on your equalization and Local Fair Share
