2020 Total expenditures

$20,332 per pupil

Per-pupil amount is calculated by dividing the total school expenditures by 554 students (which is the October enrollment audit count of public school students).

  • Total school expenditures $11,263,718
  • Total excluded expenditures $2,001,424

Excluded expenditures include: debt service, capital expenditures, construction and capital improvements, community service operations, and expenditures sourced from private funds (such as parent fees and corporate or charitable donations.) These are not included in the per-pupil expenditure calculation because they are considered outside of the day-to-day operation of the school.

  • 2020 Total expenditures $13,265,142

The sum of total school and excluded expenditures is the total amount of money the LEA spent for the fiscal year.
