This brief publication contains data on revenues and expenditures per pupil made by school districts for school year 2004-05. Median per pupil revenue and expenditure data are reported by state, as well as values at the 5th and 95th percentiles. Data for charter schools are reported separately. There are also discussions on the different types of school districts, and other resources that may be helpful in analyzing school district level data. Revenues and expenditures for the 100 largest school districts are included, as well as federal revenues by program. For tables 1 through 6 in this report, all regular school districts that have student counts greater than zero and that are listed in the Common Core of Data (CCD) Local Education Agency Universe Survey file for school year 2004-05 were included in the analyses. There were 15,287 such districts in FY05. National figures do not include independent charter school districts; however, charter schools affiliated with regular school districts are included in the national and state figures. Table 7 presents the revenues and current expenditures of the 100 largest school districts according to the size of their student enrollment, using data from the School District Finance Survey. The federal revenues table (table 8) includes all local education agencies reported in the School District Finance Survey. Appendix A, Methodology and Technical Notes, contains information about survey content and methodology. Appendix B is a glossary of key CCD terms used in this report. (Contains 8 tables and a link to related data files.)
