The fiscal year 2015 New York State enacted budget increased school aid by $1.1 billion for school year 2014-15, or 5.4 percent. Aid in school year 2014-15 will be $21.8 billion, surpassing the 2009-10 peak of $21.7 billion. More than half of the increase, or $602 million, will be delivered through Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA) restorations that do not adequately reflect changes in enrollment, student need, or district ability to pay; the legislature also added $251 million for foundation aid and $267 million for expense-based and other categorical grant aid, a form of aid favoring wealthier and higher spending districts. The budgeted increase in “formula, expense-based aid and other categorical” for each school district is shown in the map.
