formulas used to allocate revenue among community school districts and schools
I. Description of the subject and purpose of the proposed item under consideration.
Pursuant to Education Law section 2590-r, the Chancellor must develop objective formulas for use in allocating revenue among community school districts and schools. The Department of Education (“DOE” or “the Department”) has developed formulas setting forth the baseline and special categorical weighted Fair Student Funding multipliers (the “FSF Formula Weights” or “formulas”) to allocate tax levy dollars to schools. The DOE uses these formulas, together with an estimate of the total sum of money available to the Department, to provide community school districts and schools with budget allocations for use in the school-based budgeting process set forth in Chancellor’s Regulation B-801.
On March 3, 2017, the DOE issued proposed formulas for the 2017-2018 school year. In them, the DOE proposed to maintain the formula weights used in the 2016-2017 school year. The DOE continues to propose that the weights from the 2016-2017 school year are maintained. The posting has been amended to bring the formulas to the Panel for Educational Policy for vote at the May 17, 2017 meeting. No other changes have been made.
