FCPS logo

Frederick County Public Schools wants to hear from the community about their budget priorities regarding next year's school system operating budget.

The public is invited to a Community Budget Forum for Fiscal Year 2024 from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, November 30. Due to staff members not being able to attend in person, FCPS has changed the format to entirely virtual.  We apologize for the change, but wanted to ensure that key staff members were available to hear the community's input. 

All are invited. To participate, please click on the video call link here: https://meet.google.com/kjm-gnrb-jnz or call 1-224-601-6379 and use PIN: 118 434 738#.

At this point in the budget process, Superintendent Dr. Cheryl L. Dyson is gathering feedback to prepare her recommended FY24 budget, which FCPS will share with the public Monday, January 9, 2023. FCPS is looking forward to community feedback November 30, which will help shape the superintendent's proposed budget. 

The BOE will hold several work sessions and discussions regarding the budget and a public hearing on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. The Board Requested budget is scheduled to be approved Wednesday, February 8, 2023, and forwarded to the County. The Board will hold additional budget discussions as needed throughout April and May. Final budget approval is scheduled for Wednesday, June 28, 2023. The budget will take effect Friday, July 1, 2023.
