Realigning Resources for District Success

Duval County Public Schools Final Report

After one year of in-depth resource analysis, ERS released a report on Duval County Public Schools (DCPS), Realigning Resources for District Success. The report provides a blueprint for the district, presenting in detail significant opportunities where the district can improve student outcomes despite dire budget realities through better alignment of resources to priorities. DCPS, in partnership with Jacksonville Public Education Fund, initiated the process with ERS back in the fall of 2010.

Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) is poised to take action today that will lead to serving all students more effectively. Although the challenges are significant, including deep budget cuts, the district made the strategic choice to look thoroughly at how resources are currently allocated and now has a foundation for making decisions that will lead to greater teaching effectiveness, more successful turnaround schools, and targeted attention for students who need it most.

This report lays out what has to be done, why and how. It shows that DCPS will have to make tough trade-offs, continue to work hard and to make the most of exceptional community support. It won’t be easy, but the return on investment for the students of Duval County and the community more broadly warrants the effort. We expect and hope the report will inform and support DCPS’s efforts to improve.
