# Rounds to zero.
1 Include instruction, instruction-related, support services, and other elementary/secondary current expenditures, but exclude expenditures on capital outlay, other programs, and interest on long-term debt.
2 An expenditure function divided into seven subfunctions: student support services, instructional staff support, general administration, school administration, operations and maintenance, student transportation, and other support services.
3 Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming indicated that prekindergarten programs were not included in the NPEFS data, so counts of these students were subtracted from the student membership data reported on the State Nonfiscal Survey of Public Elementary/Secondary Education for use on the NPEFS. The membership for Wisconsin was derived from the CCD School District Finance Survey.
4 Include attendance and social work, guidance, health, psychological services, speech pathology, audiology, and other student support services.
5 Include operations that are operated as a business and receipts from the operation are expected to fund the enterprise (e.g., school bookstores and certain after school activities).
6 U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
7 Value affected by redistribution of reported expenditure values to correct for missing data items, and/or to distribute state direct support expenditures.
8 Both the District of Columbia and Hawaii have only one school district each; therefore, neither is comparable to other states.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
