This First Look report presents data on public elementary and secondary education revenues and expenditures at the local education agency (LEA) or school district level for fiscal year (FY) 2012.1. Specifically, this report includes findings from the following types of school finance data: (1) Revenue and expenditure totals by state and the 100 largest LEAs; (2) LEA revenues by federal, state, and local revenues by source; (3) Expenditures by function and object totals by state; (4) Current expenditures per pupil by state and the 100 largest LEAs; (5) Interest on debt; and (6) Capital outlay. The finance data used in this report are from the School District Finance Survey (F-33), a component of the Common Core of Data CCD. The CCD is the primary National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) database on public elementary and secondary education in the United States. The F-33 survey consists of LEA-level finance data submitted annually to the NCES and the Economic Reimbursable Surveys Division of the United States Census Bureau (Census Bureau) by state education agencies (SEAS) in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The SEAs submit data in conformance with "Financial Accounting for Local and State School Systems:2009 Edition(Allison, Honegger, and Johnson 2009), the NCES handbook that provides guidance to SEAs and LEAs in establishing and maintaining their school financial accounting systems. The purpose of this First Look report is to introduce new data through the presentation of tables containing descriptive information. The selected findings chosen for this report demonstrate the range of information available when using F-33 data files. Appendix A describes the survey content and methodology. Appendix B is a glossary of key terms used in this report. Appendix C includes a table with the difference in median current expenditures per pupil in noncharter districts and independent charter school districts for 22 states that reported data. Appendix D includes the final FY 11 tables that includes all revisions since the tables were originally published in the report entitled Revenues and Expenditures for Public Elementary and Secondary School Districts: School Year 2010-11 (Fiscal Year 2011) (NCES 2013-344).
