FCSB UPDATE:  ANNUAL FCPS BUDGET IS TWO to THREE TIMES HIGHER THAN INFLATION


By Paul Johny


What is the common denominator in the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) with: 80 hours of sex ed classes, trying to force boys in girls bathrooms, frivolous unneeded million dollar school name changes, forced unwanted busing to create social equity, flooding of illegal aliens and second language programs, Cadillac special ed programs that attract people from around the country to move to Fairfax, reports of sleep deprived and stressed out students, while simultaneously given many weeks worth of student half days and three day weekends?


The answer is the out of control Fairfax County School Board (FCPB), who know no bounds to regressive, harmful, dangerous, and wasteful ideas and policies.  But there is another sad cost, ever increasing taxes that harm everyone in society by cause more and more people to go into poverty and  strain to make ends meet (i.e., work overtime, two jobs, live in debt, stress, worries, physical health problems, etc).


One of the many talented concerned citizens in Fairfax County was kind enough to attend recent meetings and perform some analysis of disastrous relationship between the Fairfax County Schools, the Out of Control School Board, and the out of control property taxes.  Here’s what the citizen’s excellent analysis showed.




FCPS EXCELS AT CLASS ROOM TRAILERS 


FCPS is 10th largest school system in the USA. The projected number of students for FY20 is slightly over 189,000.  Fairfax County ranks second in all of Northern VA on SAT scores at an average of 1212. Only Falls Church ranks higher with an average of 1264 SAT scores.  FCPS is working on reducing trailers whereby they now have around 20,000 kids in around 500 trailers throughout the FCPS system. 

2020 FCPS BUDGET IS BLOATED

The total budget is $3.0 BILLION for the School Operating Fund.  This is an increase of 4.1% over last year’s budget.  86% of the budget is allocated to instructional programs.  Nearly 90% of the total budget is for salaries and fringe benefits.  This represents $117.4 million increase over FY19 budget which is a 4% increase over last year’s budget.  The General Fund Transfer to the FCPS reflects an increase of $86.46 million or 4.11% over the funding level in the FY19 Adopted Budget.  The overall transfer county transfer is $2.136 BILLION to the FCPS plus State Aid of $712.1 million, Federal Aid of $45 million, beginning balance of $24.5 million, and other transfers and reserves totaling around $72 million equaling the grand total of $3.0 BILLION. FCPS construction is estimated to be $203 million.

The average per pupil cost is $16,057 for FY20.  For FY19, it was $15,293. The Special Education per pupil cost is $26,030 which is 18.7% of the total FCPS budget which is $558.9 million. The ESOL per pupil cost is $4,047 + the average cost of $16,057 totaling $20,104 per pupil cost which is a net of 2.7% of the total budget of $76.5 million offset by an additional $17.4 is provided by the state and Federal government grants to the FCPS.

EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION LAGS DUE TO YEARS OF NEGLECT 

FCPS is making headway in raising teachers’ salaries and benefits to be comparable to other neighboring school districts (Note – Decades of school board neglect from inverted priorities has caused teacher salary and compensation to lag).  Teacher salaries Scale Enhancement includes 1% MRA and step increases of 2.6% and for non-teachers a 1% MRA.  All of this amounts $80.1 million plus employer retirement contributions for the Fairfax County Employees Retirement System (FCERS) of 0.7 million and the Educational Employees Supplemental Retirement of Fairfax County (ERFC) of $5.1 million for a grand total of $85.8 million all of which represents increases from last year’s budget.  The largest part of this $85.8 total budget number is made up of Teacher Salary Scale Enhancement of $55 million, Step increase for Eligible Employees of $46.8 million, and Non-teacher scales MSA of $8.2 million as these are the largest pieces.

The total costs of VRS contributions is $2478 million, VRS health care $19.1 million, FCERS is $57.0 million, ERFC is $102.8 million, health insurance is $259.6 million.  Social Security contributions is $140.5 million and life insurance is $17.4 million for FY20.  They will have a 2% increase in health insurance costs.

OUT OF CONTROL SCHOOL BOARD CREATES OUT OF CONTROL TAXES


Every year and every decade, the FCPS budget increases at least TWO to THREE TIMES the consumer price index (inflation rate).  The nationwide Consumer Price Index, according to the Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics states that for calendar year 2018, the rate increased 1.6%.  It is said that the Washington, Arlington, and Alexandria consumer price index increased overall to an average of 1.9%, while this year the FCPS budget increased for FY20 to 4.1% and the General Funds Disbursements increased 3.67%.  See the FCPS Budget for yourself at https://www.fcps.edu/sites/default/files/media/pdf/FY2020Proposed Budget Final.pdf .


And what is the cause of the out of control annual increases in school budget?   Answer:  The abusive and corrupt out of control Fairfax County School Board that needs the hard boot out the door.

ACTIONS TO CONSIDER:

  • Help elect great new candidates to replace the terrible ones in November 2019. There are many great new school board candidates running, but they need helpers. The school board election is in November 2019 and the new candidates need help getting name recognition starting now. There are a total of 12 school board seats up for election this November 2019 in Fairfax County (nine schools districts, and three at large positions). Positive change starts with positive support. Both financial contributions to candidates and physical volunteers are welcomed and needed.
