The Superintendent’s Proposed Budget For FY2021

The Baltimore County Public Schools total proposed budget for fiscal year 2021 is $2.17 billion; of that, $1.82 billion is the FY2021 proposed operating budget.

About the budget development process

In his FY2021 budget proposal to the Board of Education, Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams prioritized classroom instruction and support through the addition of 482.5 positions. The superintendent’s proposal was shaped by extensive feedback from students, parents, staff, and community members, including the 100-Day Entry Plan process, which included 10 Community Conversations.

  • Learning, Accountability, and Results: School-based classroom support is the clear focus of Dr. Williams’ budget proposal through the addition of 115.3 teachers for enrollment growth, 124.5 teachers for Title I and focus schools, 61 special education positions, and 52 positions to support English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Highlights include PreKindergarten expansion and cost savings for student devices.

  • Safe and Supportive Environment: Staffing increases include 10 school counselors, five school social workers, five school psychologists, 5.6 health assistants, a nurse for the ESOL welcome bus, and two floating nurses.
  • High-Performing Workforce and Alignment of Human Capital: The proposal provides potential step and COLA increases, which are currently under negotiation, as well as increases in fringe benefit costs (such as medical and retiree health) and the mandated minimum wage increase.

  • Community Engagement and Partnerships: Dr. Williams proposed adding a communications officer who is bilingual in Spanish and English and who has expertise communicating with families who speak a variety of languages.

  • Operational Excellence: Highlights include investments in preventive maintenance, additional custodians, general and special education bus attendants, bus driver training and incentives, as well as critical information technology infrastructure.

The budget process includes public input, a proposed budget by the Board of Education, and a budget proposal from County Executive John Olszewski to the County Council, before the final budget is approved by the County Council.
