Fair Student Funding Overview for 2018-19 School Year

2018-2019 School Budgets

The transition from the 2017-2018 school year to the 2018-2019 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 collective bargaining related increases.

Adjustments for Salary:
  • Schools are funded for the FY 2019 value of the collective bargaining related increases for staff active at the start of FY 2019, and for FY 2018 service levels of per diem and per session, adjusted for year-over-year weighted register changes. The FY 2019 collective bargaining adjustment for weighted register change is $736.42 per weighted capita.
  • During FY 2018 system-wide average teacher salaries, excluding the fully funded collective bargaining increases, remained the same as the prior year, therefore the formula for FY 2019 is unadjusted to reflect the steady citywide average teacher salary.
Additional details are available in the Fair Student Funding Guide.
