The transition from the 2015-2016 school year to the 2016-2017 school year ensures that schools are allocated the same base-lined funds they received in the prior year with adjustments only for changes in the number and needs of students, and for changes to the citywide average salary. In addition, new funding is invested in:

Raising the system-wide minimum funding percentage to 87% of the Formula.

Raising Renewal and Community Schools to 100% of the Formula.

New and enhanced English Language Learner (ELL) weights to support recent amendments to ELL mandated services and Students with Interrupted Formal Education (SIFE).

Adjustments for Salary:

Schools are fully funded for the 2017 value of the collective bargaining related increases, based on FY 2016 FSF scheduled budgets, and adjusted for year-over-year weighted register changes. The FY 2017 collective bargaining adjustment for weighted register change is $ 396.15 per weighted capita.

During FY 2016 system-wide average teacher salaries, excluding the fully funded collective bargaining increases, decreased from the prior year, therefore the formula for FY 2017 is adjusted to reflect the lower average teacher salary. The FY 2017 average teacher salary adjustment is a reduction of ($ 7.80) per weighted capita.

Where schools have consolidated, the FY 2016 weighted registers have been combined, with net register growth above the prevailing school's FY 2016 register added at 100% FSF prior to any changes detailed on this page.

Calculated at the FSF Preliminary Funding Percent, capped at 100%. The Preliminary FSF Funding Percent represents FY 2016 school percent of formula after the Mid-Year Register adjustment.

Includes CB for all staff on school payroll as well as Per Diem, Per Session, Pro Rata and Prep Period Coverage.

Calculations may have minor discrepancies due to rounding.
