PGCPS FY2014 Budget

BudgetThe Prince George’s County Public Schools FY2014 budget will focus resources on the maintenance of core services and programs that directly impact teaching and learning. The budget will also support our primary goals of ensuring that students have the tools for academic success, there are effective teachers in every classroom, and that students are college- and career-ready upon graduation.

PGCPS adopts a balanced budget each year. Budget development for the next school year begins in the fall with public hearings and ends in late spring with the Board of Education’s adoption of a final budget. This budget is presented to county officials and covers the fiscal year from July 1 through June 30.

Where does our money come from? 

Funding for public education comes from federal, state and local sources. Some funding sources are restricted, and can only be used for specific budget items. View a presentation on the annual budget process. - Proceso del Presupuesto Anual de PGCPS 

How do we determine how much money individual schools receive? 

In the past, we have used a formula based on student enrollment to determine how much money each school receives. This year, we are transitioning to a Student Based Budgeting (SBB) model, which will help us match resources to students’ needs. Read more about SBB.
