This brief publication contains basic revenue and expenditure data, by state, for public elementary and secondary education for school year 2005-06. It contains state-level data on revenues by source and expenditures by function, including expenditures per pupil. It presents data from the School District Finance Survey for School Year 2005-06 (fiscal year 2006, or FY 06). The School District Finance Survey is a district-level survey that consists of data submitted annually to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) by state education agencies (SEAs) in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. All financial transactions associated with assets, expenditures, revenues, and indebtedness are accounted for, including revenues from federal, state, and local sources and expenditures in categories such as instruction and instruction-related activities, student support services, administration, operation, capital outlay, and debt services. The School District Finance survey is part of the Common Core of Data (CCD) surveys that collect administrative records data from SEAs. The data are collected and edited by the Governments Division of the U.S. Census Bureau for NCES. All 50 states and the District of Columbia provided data for FY 06. This report contains 8 tables. 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 CCD Local Education Agency Universe Survey file for school year 2005-06 were included in the analyses. There were 15,335 such districts in FY 06. 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. Data for independent charter school districts are reported separately at the end of tables 1 through 4 and are included in tables 5 and 6. Table 7 presents the revenues and current expenditures of the 100 largest school districts according to the size of their student enrollment, as reported in the School District Finance Survey. The federal revenues table (table 8) includes all local education agencies reported in the School District Finance Survey. Appended is information about survey content and methodology and a glossary of key CCD terms used in this report. Also included is 1 related data file. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
