SAMs by category


Fair Student Funding    These are the funds allocated through the new formula that make up a majority of a school’s budget.  These funds are all unrestricted and to be used at the Principal’s discretion.
Children First Supplemental Funds    These are funds devolved from regional and central offices to Principals.  These funds are to be used by schools to purchase their School Support Organization for next year.   Any remaining funds can be used at the principal’s discretion to best meet the needs of their students. 
Externally restricted funds    These funds are allocated separately because they are subject to restrictions by Federal, State and City governments or donors. Examples include Title I, Attendance Improvement/Dropout Prevention, and Robin Hood Libraries.  
Internally restricted funds    These funds are allocated separately because they are subject to the Department’s own restriction in order to meet core priorities.  These funds include parent coordinators and gifted/talented programs.  
Other Special Education Funds    These funds are allocated separately in order to meet the needs of special education students.  

 

Budget and Technical Adjustments    These funds come from adjustments made to budgets for technical reasons.
