Public School Funding in North Carolina.
Jones, Enid Beverly
This brief report describes funding structures for public schools in North Carolina. It is divided into three sections: state, local, and federal. Following are some highlights from the report. Overall, the state provides 70 percent of school funding, with most of the money designated for professional salaries. The state average per pupil expenditure at the time the report was prepared was $6,284. The lowest contribution made by a county at the time the report was prepared was $83; the highest was $3,684. The range for total per pupil expenditures on the local level at the time the report was prepared was $5,129 to $11,367. In 1999, 49 percent of federal funds were used for special populations, low-income children, the state's fund to meet the national education goals; 32 percent was used for food programs; and 19 percent for such things as teacher professional development, job-training programs, and class-size reduction. The report includes 3 graphs and 11 print and Web sources. (WFA)
