1 1 Understanding The Budget Cycle: Building Next Year’s Budget Today

2 2 The Budget Cycle Planning Tools: Register Projections Initial school allocations are based on register projections. Based on the audited October 31 st registers for the current year and the school’s enrollment, Office of Student Enrollment Planning and Operations (OSEPO) posts figures for the upcoming fiscal year. Once posted, Principals assess projected figures and can either accept or request a review, where they may provide alternate data. Planning: February - May

4 4 Funding Sources DOE receives funds from various sources: Federal, State, City and Private. These fund sources are placed into funding categories. The pie chart shows a graphic representation of the proportions of the three funding sources and varies from school to school. The Budget Cycle Initial Allocation & Budget Scheduling: May - June

5 5 Funding Sources Tax Levy Monies provided by New York City to support educational programs are called Tax Levy funds.

7 7 7 TL Fair Student Funding (HS) 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. TL Fair Student Incremental Funding (HS) Schools with budgets below their FSF formula will receive their FY 08 incremental allocations. TL Children’s First Funding 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. TL Children’s First Inquiry Team Inquiry Team process is geared to assist schools in data driven decision making by integrating the components of the Accountability Initiative into the life of the school. Allowable expenditures: per session, per diem and prep coverage TL FSF General Hold Harmless (HS) Schools with budgets above their FSF formula level will be “held harmless” compared to the funding they would have received before Fair Student Funding.

9 9 Funding Sources Reimbursable Funding Reimbursable funding represents the portion of the school allocation derived from specific state, federal and private fund sources. Reimbursable funding must be used to provide additional instructional services that are over and above the basic instructional services. Funding is determined by eligible student population.  Poverty Rate  English Language Learners (ELL)  Special Education  At-Risk Students  Attendance Rate Note: Funds are directed to the school from the city. Upon review of usage, the state reimburses the city for the expenses. The Budget Cycle Initial Allocation & Budget Scheduling: May - June
