The State of Connecticut’s biennial budget for fiscal years 2020 and 2021 contains numerous changes to the Connecticut State Department of Education’s (CSDE) budget, and to the funding of education programs. Under the new budget, the CSDE’s budget is increased by $56 million (1.9 percent) in FY 2020 over estimated FY 2019 expenditures, and further increased by an additional $51.5 million (1.7 percent) in FY 2021, over FY 2020 funding levels, resulting in a $107.5 million (3.6 percent) increase in CSDE funding over the biennium.
These two documents summarize the CSDE's budget for FYs 2020 and 2021, and provide a look into the significant changes made to the department's budget.
- The first document provides an overall summary of the CSDE's budget and funding levels for the biennium, and analyzes budget implementer language that may impact the department's operations.
- The second document provides a line item analysis of changes made to the CSDE's budget and compares budget appropriations for FYs 2020 and 2021 with estimated expenditures for FY 2019.
Note: These summary documents should not be construed as either supporting or opposing any of the budget provisions and/or changes detailed in these documents. Additionally, these summaries are not meant to be exhaustive analyses of the enacted budget, and instead, focus on the Connecticut State Department of Education’s budget. As a result, programs or resource transfers possibly impacting K-12 education in Connecticut that are found under other state agency budgets have not been analyzed or included in these summaries.
