Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD

State Foundation Aid per Student – FY 2008

This chart shows projected state aid in the basic foundation program for each school district in Maryland. State aid per student has increased since FY 2002 because of the provisions of the Bridge to Excellence in Public Schools (Thornton) Act. Montgomery County Public Schools, despite receiving increased state aid, remains third lowest in the state in aid per student ($1,437) because it has relatively more local wealth than almost any other school district in the state. According to the state equalization formula, districts with greater wealth and greater local fiscal capacity, receive less per student than poorer districts. Some poorer districts, such as Baltimore City and Allegany County, receive nearly $5,000 in state aid per student.
