The near-total shutdown of the economy will cause financial distress in many school districts. The levels of suffering may hinge largely on the sources of funding that comprise districts’ annual budgets.

Use this searchable table to find out how much districts depend on state aid—an important indicator of how school systems will withstand a steep downturn.
