Fair Student Funding Overview

Budget Overview For 2013-14 School Year

2013-2014 School Budgets

School year 2013-2014 Fair Student Funding (FSF) allocations will reflect the following:
  • School budgets in FY14 remain comparable to FY13 levels due to stable year-to-year City and State revenues.
  • Schools that would start FY14 with a FSF budget under 81% of the formula will receive additional dollars to raise their FSF allocation to 81% of the formula.
  • Funding weights for high school pupils with significant graduation challenges (those who enroll "over the counter" and are considered over-age and under-credited) will continue to grow for non-Transfer Schools in the second and final year of formula revisions designed to improve support for these pupils by matching their support to that of students with heavy graduation challenges in Transfer Schools. The funding weight for Transfer School pupils that do not have heavy graduation challenges will experience a second corresponding decrease.
