A comprehensive portal for those interested in how Connecticut's school finance system impacts Danbury

Danbury Public Schools is the seventh largest district in Connecticut and remains underfunded by the State by almost $30 million, according to the ECS formula. Despite taxpayers in Danbury currently paying 70 cents of every dollar in the city’s education budget, Danbury has the lowest per-student spending in the state ($12,794) and spends less per student than similar districts.

This is the result of Danbury’s increasing student needs not being accounted for in the current funding system.

Below is a collection of documents providing greater information about school funding in Danbury and why Connecticut's current school finance system is unfair to the students, schools, taxpayers, and community of Danbury.
