How much are this district's per pupil expenditures?


Idaho’s per-pupil expenditures are calculated by dividing current expenditures by the total student enrollment. Current expenditures are comprised of expenditures for the day-to-day operation of schools, including, but not limited to: expenditures for instruction, administration, instructional support, and operation and maintenance of facilities. Expenditures are shown by fund source (state/local and federal).
