What is the cost to provide a .5 fiscal support position to each Title I school with 600 or more students? What is the cost to have two counselors at the same school instead of 1.5?
For FY 2018, there are 11 Title I schools with enrollment greater than 600 students. To allocate a .5 school financial specialist position to the 11 schools, 5.5 school financial specialist positions would need to be added to the elementary schools budget at a cost of $568,742 (including employee benefits).
To increase the allocation from 1.5 counselor positions to 2.0 counselor positions at the same 11 Title I schools, an additional 5.5 counselor positions would need to be added to the elementary schools budget at a cost of $735,244 (including employee benefits).
