Which school district spends the most per student in the Commonwealth? Which spends the least?
The SCHOOL SPENDING database provides school spending and revenue sources by school district for the last decade, all readily available and easily downloadable.
Since 1999, school spending has steadily increased each year, even as student enrollment remained largely unchanged. The data in this application will allow you to see how your school district compares with others around the state in terms of spending per student. These data, coupled with the data compiled for other openPAgov.org applications, will create a detailed portrait of school spending and school achievement. Read the data, and decide for yourself: am I getting my money's worth?
