Summary of Finances

The Summary of Finances (SOF) is a state aid report produced by the Texas Education Agency for each school district and charter school. It describes the district’s or school’s funding elements and Foundation School Program (FSP) state aid.

The report includes information on:

  • the number of students in average daily attendance (ADA) and weighted average daily attendance (WADA),
  • the number of students making up special student populations,
  • property values,
  • tax rates, and
  • tax collections.

The SOF also shows the Tier I entitlement (basic entitlement), the Tier II allotment (supplemental funding), and a variety of other FSP allotments, including facilities allotments, if any.

For each district, the TEA produces several SOF reports throughout the school year, updating the information in the report as new data become available. To find out more, see School Finance 101: Funding of Texas Public Schools (Revised January 2013) (PDF, 609 KB).
