# Rounds to zero.
1 Current expenditures 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 Support services is 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 The student membership variable is derived from the State Nonfiscal Survey. Three states (Nebraska, Utah, and Wyoming) indicated that the state fiscal data reported in NPEFS excluded prekindergarten programs. In these three states, the NPEFS total student membership variable excludes prekindergarten membership. Illinois and Wisconsin did not report finance data for charter schools in the FY 10 NPEFS survey. NCES edited student membership for Illinois and Wisconsin by excluding students from districts where all associated schools are charter schools.
4 Student support services include attendance and social work, guidance, health, psychological services, speech pathology, audiology, and other student support services.
5 Enterprise operations 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.
