Chelsea Public Schools 2019- 2020 Annual Budget
Funding for Public Education in Massachusetts
State Budget Process
Each year the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through the Department of Elementary and Secondary
Education (DESE) goes through a methodical process to determine what it costs to educate a public school
student in different cities, towns, and regional districts, and how much local governments can contributed
versus what funding the State will need to provide that year. At the same time, DESE determines the
minimum that can be spent on education that year in each district. However, no spending maximums are
established and communities may contribute more than the minimum, if desired.

The DESE calculations contribute to the budget that the Governor provides to the State legislature each
January. Following this, the State budget is considered by the House of Representatives and Senate, in
turn, each of which adopt their own budget for the upcoming year. If the House and Senate differ in their
budget figures, then they meet in conference committee to develop a final, agreed-upon budget proposal.
If approved in both houses, the Legislature’s budget is then sent to the Governor who can then choose to
accept the budget or veto individual items. Any items vetoed can be overturned and approved by a 2/3
vote of both houses.

Terms commonly used during the State budgeting process include:

       •   “Foundation Budget” - What the State estimates it costs to educate all students who live in Chelsea
           based upon their unique attributes (e.g., grade levels, English language learner (ELL) status, special
           education needs, economically disadvantaged);
       •   “Local Contribution” – The amount of the Foundation Budget that the State determines the local
           community is able to contribute based upon local economic factors (e.g., property values, local
           revenues, etc.);
       •   “Chapter 70” – The State contribution that is added to the Local Contribution in order to reach
           Foundation Budget figure; and,
       •    “Required Net School Spending (NSS)” – The minimum the State determines must be spent on
           education in a District. Failure to meet the minimum NSS in any given year has significant financial
           impacts including the need to make up the missed spending in future years along with a penalty
           assessed by the State.

The Foundation Budget, Local Contribution, and Chapter 70 Funding all apply to all children that live in
a community. Afterward, funding for charter schools and choice districts is deducted from foundation total
based upon enrollment1. The State determines the amount per pupil that must be transferred to each
school/district. (Under “School Choice” some districts have made seats available to students who do not
live in the community. Funds for choice students are then transferred from the home district to the receiving
district.)

1   The cost of vocational schools is taken directly from the State’s allocation of revenue to local government (aka “cherry sheet”).

CPS Budget Process
Chelsea Public Schools (CPS) is required by the City Charter to balance its budget to the Governor’s
budget even though on many occasions the budget adopted by the Legislature and ultimately approved
by the Governor (or overridden by the Legislature) may be different in small and large ways. Each year,
the District receives the Governor’s proposed budget in January, most often during the 4th week of the
month per the statutory deadline (this year on January 23, 2019). Based upon the funding allocation
provided, using projections for cost increases based upon contractual obligations, anticipated cost
increases, and program initiatives, CPS staff determine how much projected expenditure differs from
revenues. At that point, the process of determining how to balance the budget begins. The Superintendent
will meet with school principals and union representatives, and then host a community meeting to gather
input into the preliminary balancing plan. This year the community meeting was held on February 27th.

Factors Affecting the CPS Budget
Factors that affect the CPS budget include:

       The per pupil formula recommended by the Governor (aka, “Foundation Formula”) – the
        Foundation Budget and Chapter 70 calculations made by the State are done in a high level of
        detail and offer different rates per pupil at different grade levels, and supplemental funding for
        special education students, English language learners, and students found to be economically
        disadvantaged.

       District Enrollment – since funds are provided per pupil, the annual budget is directly affected
        by the numbers of students enrolled on October 1st of the year prior (e.g., October 1, 2018 for
        FY2020). That is the date DESE uses as official annual enrollment, although actual enrollment will
        vary during the year as students move in and out of the district. For many years Chelsea has been
        on an upward trend in enrollment which has resulted in increased funding. This year, that trend is
        changing and has implications for school funding (see “School Enrollment Trends” section below);

       District Enrollment (ELL and Special Education) – supplemental funding is provided for State-
        recognized students who are in the process of learning English and/or who have been identified
        as having special educational needs. The number of ELL and Special Education students enrolled
        – and recognized by the State – affects the annual budget;

       District Enrollment (Economically Disadvantaged) – supplemental funding is provided for
        students identified as Economically Disadvantaged as it is recognized that other factors in their
        lives affect their ability to absorb the curriculum and additional supports are often needed. In
        FY2019, the State has determined that incomes for a family of 4 below $33,383 represents
        “economically disadvantaged”. Further, the determination of economically disadvantaged status
        is done via a name match with State databases such as MassHealth and SNAP, etc. As a result, it
        has become very important for CPS to receive additional documents from families to try to
        maximize the number of students that match in the database and are not discounted because of
        typographical errors; and,

       Charter school, school choice, and vocational school enrollment – since funding for Chelsea
        residents who attend other schools or districts is transferred from the City to the receiving
        school/district, this influences the revenues available to CPS.

Current Year (FY2019) Revenue & Expenditure
In the current fiscal year, FY2019, which
will end on June 30th, the greatest
funding source for CPS is State Chapter
70 funding at nearly 62% of the budget.
Following this is funding provided by the
City of Chelsea. This includes $17.3
million in required foundation budget
spending plus an additional $9 million in
funding for expenses that are not
eligible for NSS and additional
voluntary contribution toward the schools.
To the Chapter 70 and City funding, CPS
has secured nearly $9.4 million in grant
funds (see “Other Funds” section below). In addition, the District receives revenues from the school lunch
program that are utilized to fund cafeteria staffing and expenses.

The District was fortunate to receive additional Chapter 70 funding this fiscal year as a result of the State
Legislature’s budget revisions. This included $630,000 in Chapter 70 funding and $296,025 in
Transitional Relief (also known as “Pothole”) funding. In September 2018, the School Committee
appropriated the funds to a number of critical purposes including the reinstatement of one yellow school
bus, the addition of three new crossing guard stations, and a Librarian to be split between Chelsea High
School and the elementary schools at the Mary C. Burke (MCB) Complex.

In terms of expenditures, staff labor and
associated health and other benefits
represents the largest category of
spending. This is to be expected given the
large numbers of people who contribute
to student education including crossing
guards, cafeteria workers, custodians and
maintenance staff, security monitors,
teachers, counselors, social workers, school
administrators, and central administration
among them. Overall in FY2019, the
District has approximately 914 full time
equivalents2 (FTE) on all funds (excluding
lunch funds).

The next largest expenditure categories after labor and benefits are Special Education, Transportation,
and Facilities. Special Education costs in graphic are for outside placements and contractual expenses
only; the staff who provide in district services to special education students are included under labor and
insurance. Transportation costs include in-district yellow buses, in- and out-of-district special education
transportation, and transportation for homeless students (known by the name of the act requiring
transportation called “McKinney-Vento”). Facilities includes the costs of ongoing and extraordinary
maintenance, utilities, furniture, grounds maintenance, etc.

2FTE represents the sum of all staffing including part time and full time positions. The actual number of individuals working in
an organization will typically be higher than the FTE since some people will be working part time.

Revenue Forecast (FY2020)
Governor’s Budget FY2020
The budget submitted by Governor Baker to the State Legislature does include some increases to the
foundation budget calculations for districts across Massachusetts. Positive changes to the foundation
budget include:

                Type of increase                                 $ per pupil      % change
                General Education                                 $334 avg           +4.5%
                Out-of-district (special education)                 $2,072          + 7.5%
                High school ELL supplement                          $1,573         + 87.6%
                Economically disadvantaged supplement                  $258         + 6.3%
                Early College / Innovation Pathways               + $1,080             new

CPS is particularly pleased to see the new supplement for Early College / Innovation Pathways and has
234 students acknowledged in this category. Overall, the Governor’s changes translate into a net increase
of 5.7% per pupil, with a new minimum NSS of $13,888 per pupil for Chelsea.

At the same time, the Governor is proposing a change in the way that ELL students are defined in a way
that will adversely affect CPS funding. Specifically, he is reducing the test scores that define when a
student is no longer an English Language Learner. However, CPS and other districts are legally required
to provide expanded services to these students for four years after they start learning English regardless
of test scores. This change will reduce FY2020 revenues significantly (-$729,000) without reducing the
District’s responsibilities towards the students.

The Governor is also proposing a change in how local charter school reimbursement is calculated. Under
former Governor Patrick, the calculation was changed to the benefit of local communities – albeit still
inadequate when compared to the costs (see “Foundation Budget Formula” below) – and Governor Baker
is proposing to return the calculation to the prior formula. This will lower Chelsea’s FY2020 charter
reimbursement revenues by $518,000 when compared to FY2019.

School Enrollment Trends
Regrettably, at the same time that the
Governor is increasing the per pupil
foundation formula, CPS (and Chelsea
as a whole) is experiencing a decline in
enrollment for the first time in nearly a
decade. This means that Chelsea is not
receiving the full benefit of the
increased funding because it is offset
by fewer students. (Massachusetts has
a practice of “holding harmless”
districts with declining enrollment,
meaning that they will not take away actual funding dollars from the prior year. However, funding
increases are not fully realized and will not be until enrollment reaches the level it was before the decline

began.) Overall, the enrollment decline is reducing foundation budget revenues by approximately
$837,000 for the upcoming year.

school enrollment will stay level or increase. At the elementary school level, while enrollment declined
between 2017 and 2018, no further declines have occurred since the fall and enrollment has actually
increased by 1 student as if early March 2019.

Enrollment at Chelsea High School (CHS) has not stabilized. After declining by 178 students between
October 2017 and October 2018, enrollment has continued to fall and by early March 2019, enrollment
had declined further to 1,305 students (-55 students). Altogether in the past 18 months, enrollment has
declined by 233 students. The impacts of these declines can be seen in class sizes in the current school
year. Analysis of class sizes found that many classes are enrolled well below capacity. While enrollment
at capacity can affect students’ ability to get into preferred classes, significantly under-enrolled classes
affects the class atmosphere and does not fully utilize District teaching resources. Review of 2nd quart
enrollments finds that in the subject areas below, actual enrollment is 10 or more students under capacity:

             o     ELA - 14 out of 48 sections
             o     Math - 25 out of 44 sections
             o     Science - 29 out of 46 sections
             o     History - 14 out of 29 sections

This can be seen even more vividly in a closer look at
Algebra I enrollment this spring. Here, it can be seen
that only one class in 11 has an enrollment of over
20 students.

It was not long ago when enrollment was increasing
dramatically at CHS and the district was striving to
increase staffing at the school. However, FY2019 enrollment is now approaching that of FY2010 before
the rapid increase in enrollment began, and yet staffing is above what was in place at that time.

General Fund Foundation Budget Analysis 2019-2020
  The below table lays out the calculations used to derive funding available to Chelsea Public Schools each
  year. As described above, the Foundation Budget calculations are for all Chelsea residents enrolled in
  public school. To this is added the State’s charter school reimbursement, which is then off set by charter
  school tuition (-$15,115,953 in FY2020) and choice school tuition (-$146,941). The District receives a
  modest amount of revenue from facility rentals (+$2,500) and then contributions from the City of Chelsea
  for expenses that are not NSS eligible and a voluntary additional contribution.

Other Revenue Funds
Federal Grants
ENTITLEMENT GRANTS

Most of the Federal Grants CPS receives are entitlement grants. The District is eligible because the student
population is predominantly low-income with a significant number of special needs and limited-English-
proficient students. The FY2020 budget anticipates that these entitlement grants will continue at funding
levels required to sustain the staff and programs that these grants currently fund. In some cases, budgetary
action has been taken if projected grant spending exceeds projected grant revenue or if the grant is
expected not to be available for this budget year. When these grants are received during the course of
the fiscal year, the actual grant amount received will be presented to the Chelsea School Committee for

COMPETITIVE GRANTS
Some Federal grants received by CPS are Competitive Grants. These require an application that includes
a grant budget and a use of funds proposal that responds to specific program goals that would be
achieved by the end of the grant. We are often in competition with other school districts for these grants
and they are awarded based on how well our response matches the criteria of the grant. When these
grants are received during the course of the fiscal year, the actual grant amount received will be
presented to the Chelsea School Committee for acceptance. These grants are described as follows:

SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE SCHOOLS
The goal of this state funded competitive grant program is to provide funding to districts (and their
selected schools) to organize, integrate, and sustain school and district-wide efforts to create safe and
supportive school environments and coordinate and align student support initiatives based on their findings
from completing the Behavioral Health and Public School (BHPS) Framework and Self-Assessment Tool.
The main priorities for this grant are to ensure that each school creates a safe, positive, healthy, culturally-
competent, and inclusive whole-school learning environment; and makes effective use of a system for
integrating services and aligning initiatives that promote students' behavioral health. Funds will be used
for stipends, contractual services and supplies/materials.

IMPROVING GRADUATION RATES AND POST SECONDARY READINESS AMONG FIRST LANGUAGE
IS NOT ENGLISH (FLNE) STUDENTS (COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS)
The goal of this funding opportunity is to provide funds for the implementation of work through the
America's Promise Graduation Activation Grant. Over three years, funds are to be used to design
programming and interventions to increase the graduation rate of students who do not speak English as
a first language. Participation in this cross-district learning community with targeted training and support
is based on districts with the largest numbers of First Language is not English (FLNE) students that did not
graduate in the 2014 graduation cohort. These services are to supplement currently funded local, state,
and federal programs. FY2018 was the third and final year. Funding supports stipends and conferences.
