1 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. Wyoming indicated that their fiscal data reported in the School District Finance Survey (F-33) excluded prekindergarten programs. In this state, the F-33 total student membership variable excludes prekindergarten membership.
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 school district operates charter schools in addition to noncharter schools.
