Local school leaders hope for progress toward changing state funding formula

January 12, 2024

As Frederick County Public Schools grows faster than any other district in the state, officials are hoping for legislative progress on a persistent sticking point: how schools are funded. Districts receive a certain amount of state funding per student each year. But the state issues that funding based on the district’s enrollment from Sept. 30 of the previous year. So, as FCPS enters next school year, it will only have funding for the number of students who were enrolled in the system on Sept. 30, 2023. Any students enrolled since then will not be accounted for.
