Abstract (Summary)

This researcher examined the 13 New York School Regions to investigate if regions receive consistent levels of state aid and to determine if they are spending consistently with other regions in different categories of expenditure. School expenditures were investigated using Garner's (1998) model for expenditure alignment.

Data were gathered from archival databases from the New York State Comptroller, the New York City Board of Education, and the School District Almanac. The data bases used were from the 2003 reporting year, the most recent year of data from all sources. Comparison of dollars spent and granted state aid revealed differences in spending and aid monies.

Fiscal consistency in both revenues and expenditures were then compared to the combined wealth of each state region. Expenditure alignment was achieved. Consistencies and disparities based on wealth, aid, and expenditures were discovered.
