Annual Statewide Distribution

School LAND Trust Program
Annual Statewide Distribution

The School LAND Trust Program, established by the legislature in 1999, distributes a portion of the annual earnings from the permanent State School Fund through school districts to all public schools in the state. School Community Councils or Charter Trust Land Councils in each school prepare a plan to address the school’s greatest academic needs with the distribution. Local School Boards approve the plans in the spring, and schools with approved plans receive funding in the summer for the next school year. Plans for the upcoming school year and reports on expenditures and plan implementation are reviewed by local boards annually. Funding for the program flows through the district business administrators and goes through the same audit procedures as other school funding.
