- Full Report:
An update was made of a prior analysis of the economic impact of federally connected children on school districts to reflect changes made to the impact aid program by the Education Amendments of 1974. The updated analysis showed similar results to the original study. While the original 1976 report showed that 48 percent of the school districts studied would need property tax increases of less than 5 percent to replace impact aid payments, this figure was 42 percent in the current study. At the other extreme, the percentage of local educational agencies which would need property tax increases of 25 percent or more increased from 15 percent to 19 percent during this period.
