JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Below is a table ranking Mississippi school districts by their estimated gain or loss in state aid per student in a scenario drawn from a consultant's recommendation to alter the state school funding formula.

The formula would provide a base student cost of $4,800, an amount allocated to educate a student with no special requirements. It would then add extra per-student amounts proposed for special education students, gifted students, high school students and those learning English. Extremely rural districts also get an extra bump.

Statewide, not counting charter schools and agricultural high schools, state aid would rise $109 million. That's 5 percent, or $232 per student.

Below is the name of the district, the total amount of funding it would receive after a multiyear phase-in under current scenarios, and how much per student that amount would go up or down. Districts are ranked from greatest gain to greatest loss per student.
