With the Claremont lawsuit over the alleged inequity of the state educational funding system, there are various types of state aid available to the school districts. The NH Department of Education provides a spreadsheet showing the state aid provided to each school district each year. How does that state aid change from year to year? To determine this, a spreadsheet was compiled from the state aid over the last six years and the 3-year and 5-year changes in state aid were calculated to see if there are any trends in the state aid.
Catastrophic aid is an entitlement to any school district with special education students The formula for determining the aid to be given to the school districts is defined in RSA186-C:18.
