Which Districts Spend the Most Per Pupil in Central Mass?

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

 

School budgets and funding have been hot topics in the Worcester area of late, and GoLocal broke down which districts spend the most per-pupil in Central Mass.

The results, based on fiscal year 2011 data from the state's Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, add up all of a district's operating expenditures and divide by the average pupil membership. The only expenditures excluded from the measure are capital costs. Average pupil membership includes students in-district, as well as out-of-district placements in special education schools, charter schools and other school districts.

As the data below shows, the size of a district's pupil membership does not necessarily correlate with higher or lower per-pupil spending. Several regional and vocational/technical districts were among the highest in per-pupil expenditures in the region as well.

In 2011, the statewide average for per-pupil spending in Massachusetts was $13,361.
