Where do the funds come from?
These funds account for the revenues from federal agencies made available to school districts and charter schools for special projects. The use of these funds is typically restricted in how they can be spent.
State and Local Funds include the General Fund, which is the chief operating fund of school districts and charter schools. The majority of these dollars come from the State of Idaho from a Legislative appropriation. Other sources of funds include taxes raised from local levies and local grants. Other dollars included here are local and state dollars restricted for specific purposes.
School Expenditures per pupil are the current costs incurred at the site level directly or indirectly. Expenditures include costs for instruction, purchased services, materials and supplies, capital outlay, student support services, school administration, and operation and maintenance of facilities.
Shared Expenditures are costs that are incurred at the district level and were not allocated directly to the school. Instead, the costs were allocated to each site within the LEA using enrollment by building. Common shared costs could include; District Administration costs, Business Operations costs, Transportation costs and Child Nutrition costs.
