If the Grand List goes down, (and you are a receiving, not a giving town), the Ed Dept increases its payments to the School District to make up for it, is my understanding.  The amount of money in total that the School gets remains the same, it's just a question of from where.

Does anyone know a general rule:  if the Grand List has gone down, does the school get more or less funding?

According to the ‘Education Property Taxes Guidelines for Treasurers and Collectors Handbook’ on page 21, the timeline shows the final payments or billing will be sent out by the education department April 30-May 1st.

Hi everyone,


Now that the Education Dept has received most Town's final Grand Lists, do we know WHEN they are going to adjust their records to reflect the changes from the Aug first Grand List?  And, for Towns whose Grand List amounts went down, adjust amounts that the State pays to the School Districts?


I know that most towns only just sent their final 411 GLS in electronically in January.
