The Board of Education is currently meeting today, Sept. 26, in Richmond. Reports from the meeting reveal that rebenchmarking costs for FY 2014-2016 are estimated to be $350.6 million above the preceding biennial budget of direct aid.

Rebenchmarking represents the state cost of continuing the direct aid programs into the next biennium ($165.5 for FY 2015 and $185.2 for FY 2016). Updates to Lottery-funded and categorical accounts are pending and will increase costs further. The Local Composite Index (LCI), additional enrollment projections, sales tax and lottery projections, and VRS updates are still pending.
