Approved Fiscal Year (FY) 2025 Combined Funds Budget

On February 22, 2024, the ACPS School Board member approved adjustments to the FY 2025 Superintendent’s Proposed Budget:


The Approved FY 2025 Combined Funds Budget incorporates the School Board members’ adjustments to the Superintendent’s Proposed FY 2025 Combined Funds Budget as presented on January 4, 2024. The adjustments included in the attached motion result from Board discussions held during the January 11 and January 18 budget work sessions. On February 8, 2024, the School Board reviewed a list of suggested adjustments during the first Add/Delete Work Session. The adjustments to the proposed budget focused primarily on employee compensation enhancement changes and the addition of several crucial teacher and staff positions.


The Approved Budget seeks to add a 2.0% Market Rate Adjustment for eligible staff and also include an additional Step increase for all eligible staff who did not receive a Step increase in FY 2021. Additional positions that are being considered include the addition of 2.0 Elementary Advanced Academic Services Teachers, 1.0 Athletic trainer, 1.0 College and Career Counselor, 1.0 Psychologist, 2.0 Deans of Students, and 0.4 Family Liaison positions to the Operating Fund.  These adjustments, per the Operating Fund, to the Proposed Budget are expected to be funded through the additional request of City Appropriation.


The Grants and Special Projects Fund and the School Nutrition Fund have both been revised, via expenditure reduction and/or projected revenue increases, to account for the approved compensation enhancements relative to all eligible staff funded in those respective funds.
