*The District of Columbia and Hawaii are single-district jurisdictions. As a result, it is not possible to calculate measures of financial equity, which capture the distribution of funding across districts within a state. The District of Columbia and Hawaii do not receive grades for school finance.

When sorted by score, states are ordered based on unrounded values; in the case of exact ties, states are listed in alphabetical order.
