In early March CSFP asked all 178 school district Superintendents and CFOs how they would spend a $100M buydown of the Budget Stabilization Factor (formerly the Negative Factor). CSFP posted responses on social media beginning Monday, March 5, 2018. All posts are available here, updated with the most recent posts.


From Legislative Council's School Finance Booklet April 2017:

During the 2017 Legislative Session the Legislature renamed the Negative Factor to the Budget Stabilization Factor.
