School District Expenditure Per Student

The “total expenditure per student” figure includes both operational and instructional expenditures. This indicator includes the following school districts: Champaign Community Unit School District #4, Fisher Community Unit School District #1, Gifford Community Consolidated Grade School District #188, Ludlow Community Consolidated School District #142, Mahomet-Seymour Community Unit School District #3, Rantoul City School District #137, Rantoul Township High School District #193, St. Joseph Community Consolidated School District #169, St. Joseph-Ogden Community High School District #305, Tolono Community Unit School District #7, and Urbana School District #116. Per student spending was included in the set of community indicators to illustrate some of the financial aspects of education in Champaign County.

Each district shows fluctuations in spending across the measured fiscal years; these fluctuations are independent of each other from district to district. There is no unifying county-wide trend in per student spending across the entire study period, but 11 of the 13 districts had higher per student expenditures in 2018 than in 2017.

This data, along with a variety of other school district data, is available on the Illinois Report Card, an Illinois State Board of Education and Northern Illinois University website.
