The state of Illinois adopted a General State Aid per-pupil foundation level for the 2011-2012 school year of $6,119. The legislature failed to allocate enough funding to provide the adopted level to school districts. This study examines three alternative methods of attaining the 2012 Illinois adopted foundation funding level for the 864 school districts in Illinois. The three methods explored are consolidating EAV at a county level and utilizing a uniform tax rate, moving to a state support program, and applying an operational tax rate to districts as they currently exist.
