Enterprise Public School District’s state funding for the 2022-2023 school year is $582,731 below the amount required by state law. Statewide, the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP), which funds teacher salaries and classrooms, is underfunded by $279,342,511. 

This is the 15th consecutive year that Mississippi has underfunded its public schools. Since 2008, the last time the MAEP was fully funded, students in the Enterprise Public School District have been shorted a total of $6,832,698. During this same period, Mississippi raised its academic standards significantly, yet public schools have been denied the resources needed to meet those standards.

Nationally, Mississippi ranks near the bottom, 47th among the states, in per pupil school spending (U.S. Census, Public Education Finances: FY2020, published May 2022) but much higher, 25th among the states, in the rigor of our academic standards (Education Next, published May 2018).
