|More up to date 2006 and 2007 Numbers|
This information is from a request submitted to the
school system. We wanted to know how town-side numbers
were allocated for the schools. The town's annual report
and the school committee's budget both try to obfuscate the amount
the schools actually spend.
I then added the amount received from
Title I Federal grants not shown in the school budget.
This request is based on the the 2004 fiscal year.
When all is said and done, we spend close to $13,000 per student per year. Using only the school budget numbers, this amount would drop close to $10,000.
