The Dedicated Schools Grant includes a Central School Services Block (CSSB), which is allocated to all local authorities. The CSSB includes funding previously allocated through the retained duties element of the education services grant (ESG), which covers the responsibilities held by local authorities for all schools.

The general funding rate of the ESG was only for the responsibilities that local authorities held for their maintained schools. Local authorities can fund services from the maintained school budget shares, with the agreement of the maintained school members of the schools forum, to meet these responsibilities. Local authorities provide this information to the department within their authority proforma tool (APT) and, for the financial year 2018-19, 61 local authorities funded these services from their maintained school budget shares. These authorities are as follows:
