Budget and Finance

DCPS has made it a priority to provide accurate, reliable, and timely financial information to schools and the community. This page includes information on where to find data on the DCPS overall budget and individual schools’ budgets.

Fiscal Year 2020

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 (School Year 2019-20) budget was informed by feedback from our stakeholders through the public budget hearing, budget engagement sessions, and the Chancellor’s conversations with students, educators, families and communities across the district. Visit the Budget Engagement page to learn how to participate in the budget process and read more about the FY20 budget.

School Budgets

Visit the DCPS Data Center to learn how school budgets are developed. The site also includes individual schools’ budgets for FY20 and past years.

DCPS Overall Budget

Mayor Bowser’s FY20 Proposed Budget and Financial Plan, A Fair Shot[PDF], shows the Mayor’s proposed budget, as presented to the Council, for DCPS overall. This document provides information on funding sources, budget codes, and DCPS’ agency performance plan. Note: This document accounts for holdouts (non-salary components of staff cost, such as IMPACT bonuses and retirement incentives) in the centrally managed School-Wide section. As a result, school budget totals differ from the DCPS Data Center, where holdouts are included for each school.
