MRSD Funding fairness

This page provides data and files to support www.KeepFundingFair.com.

As the below spreadsheet documents, Fitzwilliam’s income per resident is only 2% higher than the school district average, and yet Fitzwilliam currently pays 23% more resident into the district.  If article 8 passes, Fitzwilliam will pay 45% more than the average.  The spreadsheet shows that the state-wide average district is funded 72% based on admission, 28% based on property value,  which is a further indication that our current 75/25 formula is more fair than the change that article 8 proposes.
