Why it Matters: It can be argued that there is a correlation between enrollment loss and fiscal health. Enrollment loss can be caused by many factors (economy, demographics, migration etc.,) and thus changes the amount of revenue provided by the state from their Foundation Allowance (FA) which is the major source of revenue for schools. This chart shows the trend relationship between the individual school district against various geographic groupings. (n019) (o95)

Data Source: The school district financial data comes from two sources. Historic data is provided by downloads from the Michigan Department of Education, Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) Financial Information Database (FID). Future data is loaded by the respective school district financial department. (n040)
