Maryland State Department of Education Releases Per-Pupil Allocation in State Report Card

06/24/2020

Beginning this year, MSDE will add per-pupil spending data as part of the annually published school report cards. States must provide this information as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA—a federal law that seeks to ensure equity, accountability and a quality education for all public school students. A number of factors impact a school’s level of per-student funding. These factors include the number of students in the school, special education services provided, school designations such as Title I and Focus schools, and the experience level of the staff.
