Foundation Aid Plan Statement

The 2021-22 enacted state budget included language stating that, for the 2021-22, 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years, each school district receiving a foundation aid increase of more than ten percent or $10,000,000 must post to the district website prior to July 1 of each school year a plan by school year of how the funds will be used to address student performance and need.

In 2021-22, the Maryvale UFSD plans to use such funds to retain positions that address social-emotional health and wellness, maintain class sizes at the Elementary level, and to add positions to serve students with disabilities as well as provide additional support in secondary Math.

The District solicited public comment on May 10th, 2021.
