† Not applicable. The District of Columbia and Hawaii consist of one school district each; therefore, neither is comparable to other states.
1 Interschool system transactions are excluded to prevent double counting.
2 Funds spent operating local public schools and local education agencies, including such expenses as salaries for school personnel, student transportation, school books and materials, and energy costs, but excluding capital outlay, interest on school debt, payments to private schools, and payments to public charter schools.
3 The student membership obtained from the Common Core of Data (CCD) fiscal district data collection may vary slightly from the student membership obtained from the CCD nonfiscal data collection. Two states (Utah and Wyoming) indicated that the fiscal data reported in the School District Finance Survey (F-33) excluded prekindergarten programs. In these two states, the F-33 total student membership variable excludes prekindergarten membership.
NOTE: How to read this table using Alabama as an example: Five percent of regular school districts have total revenues per pupil of $8,158 or less. If all regular school districts were listed by size of total revenues per pupil, the district at the midpoint (median) would have total revenues per pupil of $9,547. Five percent of regular school districts have total revenues per pupil of $13,027 or more.
Regular school districts may operate charter schools in addition to noncharter schools. National and state figures include charter schools that are affiliated with regular school districts. Only regular school districts matching the Common Core of Data (CCD) "Local Education Agency Universe Survey" and with student membership greater than zero were used in creating the national and state figures; 81.1 percent of all school districts met these criteria.
