How To Read and Interpret a School District Budget.
Gover, Robert J.
This paper gives an analysis of receipts and expenditures in a sample Kentucky school district and compares them with receipts and expenditures for the United States and for other school districts in Kentucky. Data have been obtained from the sample school district, the Kentucky Department of Education, and the January 1973 issue of "School Management." The information contained in this paper makes it possible to: compare on an average daily attendance (ADA) basis the receipts from the property tax in the sample Kentucky school district with the property tax receipts in the State of Kentucky; compare on a ADA basis the total local receipts in the sample district with the averages in the State of Kentucky; compare the sample district's overall costs with average costs in Kentucky and the United States; compare expenditures for such items as administration, instruction, pupil transportation, debt service, and capital outlay; and assess the ability of the sample district and the State of Kentucky to finance public elementary and secondary education. The document also describes the various classes of receipts and expenditures in a typical school budget. (Author/DN)
