This is a working spreadsheet that contains members’ only data sets.  Copy and Paste a member school district’s BEDS number from the BEDS CODES tab into the top left corner (A1) of the RESULTS spreadsheet to reveal following metrics gleaned from state aid date files from SED: Tax Effort Ratios, Combined Wealth Ratios, Property Value Ratios, Income Value Ratios, Estimated Enrollments, and Free and Reduced Lunch percentages of the last 6 years.  Underneath this trend data will be a series of graphs that illustrate these metrics.  Each of these metrics is used in the Foundation Aid formula.  I will explain the workings of this spreadsheet at our conference in September.
