State Budget Ends GEA
The state budget, which was agreed upon last week, ends Gap Elimination Adjustment. The school aid runs contain a row for "Final GEA Payment" and another row for "Remaining GEA." All districts have a "Remaining GEA" of 0. Add "Final GEA Payment" to "Total" to find your actual total 2016-17 aid amount. Read the Educational Conference Board (ECB) memo regarding GEA elimination here.
