Budgeted Revenues and Expenditures in Public School Systems: Current Status and Trends, Update 2007
Educational Research Service
This "ERS Research Snapshot" provides answers to some of the key questions often asked by education leaders, policy makers, other school employees, and community members about budgeted revenues and expenditures within U.S. public school systems: (1) Why is information about school district budgets important?; (2) How were school district budgets generally allocated in 2006-07?; (3) To what extent did expenditure allocations of districts vary by enrollment size, geographic region, community type, and per-pupil expenditure level?; (4) How have allocations for instructional services changed since last year?; (5) How much of school district budgets was set aside for staff salaries and other benefits?; and (6) On what sources did school districts rely for funds, and how much did each source contribute? To provide answers to these questions, data on budgeted revenues and expenditures, gathered from the ERS National Survey of School District Budgets, 2006-07, are presented in this report.
