Preliminary FY 2015 State subsidy printouts available

The Department is pleased to let you know that the FY 2015 (2014-15 school year) preliminary State subsidy printouts, known as ED 279s, are now available here on our website.

It is important to remember that these printouts reflect the currently enacted biennial budget, and will no doubt be adjusted as the Legislature responds to current and projected budget shortfalls, including the $9.5 million General Purpose Aid reduction already proposed by the State’s Office of Policy and Management. We expect to release updated ED 279s following the Legislature’s adjournment in April.

We hope this early release of the preliminary ED 279s is informative to your local budgeting preparations. If you have any questions as you review these printouts, please contact our School Finance and Operations Team at 207-624-6790 or email joanne.allen@maine.gov or paula.b.gravelle@maine.gov.
