Fair Student Funding Overview

Budget Overview For 2012-13 School Year

2012-2013 School Budgets

School year 2012-2013 Fair Student Funding (FSF) allocations will reflect the following adjustments from school year 2011-2012:
  • School budgets in FY13 remain comparable to FY12 levels due to stable year-to-year City and State revenues.
  • New FSF Special Education weights support reforms that meet students’ needs through use of the least restrictive, appropriate environments and increased access to the general education curriculum.
  • Large scale changes in school budgets due to new Special Education weights are unlikely in FY13 since the revised weights apply only to changes in each school’s pupil register.
  • Schools that received FSF “class funds” for empty special education classroom seats in the current school year will receive separate transitional funding in FY13.
  • To better support high schools pupils with significant graduation challenges, the Transfer School FSF Weight now funds pupils according to their level of need and whether they are over-aged and under-credited (OAUC). OAUC students enrolling “over the counter” in traditional high schools now receive funding in FY13.
Tables below provide further details and explain the changes to each school’s budget.
