† Not applicable.
‡ Reporting standards not met. Data suppressed when the unweighted response rate is below 80 percent for a state or 85 percent for the reporting states total.
1 Includes general administration, school administration, business, central, and other support services.
2 Includes operation and maintenance of plant, student transportation, food services, enterprise operations, support services nonspecified, and other noninstructional programs.
3 Number of districts or number of students in the F-33 survey that fall within the scope of either a regular noncharter school district or an independent charter school district.
4 Number of districts or number of students in the F-33 survey that fall within the scope of either a regular noncharter school district or an independent charter school district and reflects only those districts that reported fiscal data.
5 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. For example, Utah indicated that the state's fiscal data, as reported in the F-33 survey, excluded fiscal data for prekindergarten programs. So in Utah, the F-33 student membership variable excludes the prekindergarten membership included within the CCD LEA Universe Survey student membership.
6 Quality CCD Local Education Agency Universe Survey enrollment data was not available for independent charter school districts in New Hampshire. Enrollment data was used from the CCD Public Elementary-Secondary School Universe Survey as opposed to the CCD Local Education Agency Universe Survey for this state.
7 All associated schools are charter schools
8 Reporting States includes only the states reported in this table.
9 Many charter school districts in Idaho and New Jersey report student support services data within their instruction-related expenditures. These expenditures are included in the "Instruction and instruction-related" category of this table and included in the total.
10 Regular noncharter school districts are school districts that provide instruction and other education services and that do not focus primarily on special education or vocational education. Education service agencies, independent charter school districts, and school districts that have charter and noncharter schools are excluded from this category.
NOTE: Median expenditures are reported for each data item, so details do not sum to totals. Only regular school districts matching the Common Core of Data (CCD) "Local Education Agency Universe Survey" and with student membership greater than zero and no charter schools were used in creating the state figures. Independent charter school districts matching the Common Core of Data (CCD) "Local Education Agency Universe Survey" with revenues greater than zero and expenditures greater than zero were included in the charter school analysis; 94.7 percent of charter school districts met these criteria.
