Published January 2019

Appendix II: State and Local Revenue Shares Three Approaches

As described in the Note on Methodology at the beginning of this report, the Legislative Budget Board and Texas Education Agency employ different assumptions in reporting data pertaining to the relative state and local shares of educational funding in the Foundation School Program (FSP). In this report, the Comptroller’s office employs a third method incorporating elements of both agencies’ approaches.
