Supplemental State Aid (SSA) Formerly Allowable Growth in Iowa
SSA growth provides the bread and butter of school districts’ general fund budgets and allows local decision makers to apply the funds to meet the specific needs of the children in their district.
This tool will help you project allowable growth, budget guarantee, and actual additional funding for FY 2015 and make projections for FY 2016.
Governor Branstad's Recommendation for FY 2015 Funding
New Money for FY 2015 It is extremely important that districts review the change in SSA dollars and actual funding changes for FY 2015. The additional 2% (the Plus 2%) provided by the legislature for FY 2014 is not part of the on-going school foundation aid formula. Districts cannot count the Plus 2% as continuing funding for FY 2015.
Projecting New Money for FY 2016 By entering your projections for enrollment in the fall of 2014, and projecting SSA for FY 2016, you can project your district’s new money for FY 2016.
