Fauquier County Public Schools

FY 2018 Proposed Budget

  • The school division’s (FCPS) FY 2018 Proposed Budget is based on five FY 2016 - FY 2018 biennial budget goals established in 2015 by the School Board and administrators. These budget goals are to: (1) continue to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff; (2) improve compensation and benefits; (3) encourage and support “deeper” learning; (4) reduce opportunity (achievement) gaps; and (5) focus on our technology needs.

    In the second year of the biennium, the school division's local composite index (LCI) or local ability to pay for education costs remains at 0.5827. This index is fundamental to the commonwealth’s Standards of Quality (SOQ) funding model. The state considers Fauquier County to be above the state’s average in its ability to pay for education; thereby, reducing per pupil funding. Another key indicator is average daily membership, or ADM, which has decreased from 10,880 in the FY 2017 budget to 10,766 in the FY 2018 Proposed Budget. The net result for FY 2018 is increased state funding of $591 thousand that is not sufficient to cover the school division’s increased operating costs. This budget requests an additional $1.2 million in funding from the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors (BOS). In addition, the FY 2018 Proposed Budget includes increases in local and federal grant funding; most notably, $664 thousand for the FRESH initiative (provided by the PATH Foundation) and $383 thousand for anticipated federal revenue (i.e., Title I, Title IV-B, etc.)
