How is the money distributed between charter and traditional schools?
Updated: Sep 27, 2020
Duval County Public Schools will comply with the new state statute passed by the legislation this year to distribute funds to charter schools on a per student allocation. Charter schools will decide how to spend their share. Traditional schools will also get a per student allocation but it will be distributed based upon a comprehensive study on prioritized needs for safety, repairs, renovation and construction of facilities. In other words, schools with the greatest needs and oldest facilities will be prioritized, and every school will equally benefit with safety and security measures within the first three years.
