April 2004

Welcome to the New York School Aid Simulation Program. You can use this to design an operating aid formula for New York. Follow the simple steps on the "formula worksheet" and then check your results for the whole state and by type of district.

Overall results are summarized in tables for aid, adequacy, taxes, cost indices, and fiscal capacity, and can be accessed with these buttons. To review the different types of foundation aid programs you can choose in this simulation, look in the sheet "Grant Types".

The types of districts and the associated sheets are listed on on the sheet identified as "Table of Contents".

Notes explaining calculations are identified with red markers in the upper left corner of a cell. Drag mouse over marker to see note.
