Analysis of FY 2017 DC Public Schools “At-Risk” Funds

An analysis of DCPS’ FY 2017 initial school budget allocations completed by Mary Levy, DC school finance expert, shows that 47 percent — or $22 million — of the school system’s “at-risk” resources was allocated to fund items that all schools are otherwise entitled to under DCPS’ school staffing model. You can find the details of her analysis in this Excel workbook, along with a summary of methodology and criteria used for the calculations.
