Annual Statewide Distribution

School LAND Trust Program
Annual Statewide Distribution

The School LAND Trust Program, established by the legislature in 1999, distributes the “annual dividend” from the permanent State School Fund through school districts to all public schools (including charter schools) in the state. School Community Councils, or Charter Trust Land Councils, in each school prepare a plan to address the greatest academic need with the dividend. 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.
