State Funding

The Texas Education Agency's State Funding Division is responsible for administering the Foundation School Program (FSP) and wealth equalization provisions of the Texas Education Code. The FSP determines the amount of state and local funding due to school districts under Texas school finance law and provides the state share of this funding to districts. The State Funding Division also produces reports and other data related to school finance. The division is a part of the Department of School Finance.
