Preliminary State subsidy printouts (ED 279) for school administrative units are now available this morning on the Maine DOE funding web pages. These subsidy amounts for FY 2012-13 are only preliminary and do not represent final action of the 125th Legislature and therefore should only be used as “initial” guidance for your budget preparations. Some calculations included in these amounts are dependent upon enactment of statutory changes and some calculations are based on estimated data including the adult education course counts which will be replaced at a later date with actual counts. Key changes were identified in a February 2, 2012 dispatch in the Maine DOE Newsroom.
For more information regarding these estimates, please contact Jim Rier, Suzan Beaudoin, Joanne Allen or Paula Gravelle of the Department of Education’s School Finance and Operations at 207-624-6790 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com.
