Student Based Budgeting (SBB)
Student Based Budgeting (SBB) distributes funding to schools based on students’ needs and characteristics. PGCPS is moving towards a new system of funding schools and budgeting resources. With SBB, our schools and communities will have a clearer understanding of how and why dollars are being allocated. SBB differs from our traditional funding system that allocates resources to schools based on staffing formulas and school-specific programs. Schools will be funded per child, and the amount of funding attached to each child will vary based on his or her needs. Furthermore, schools will also have more flexibility in deciding what to do with those resources.
